The Evening Grosbeak moves in large flocks and will throw a party at your backyard feeder. They only show up about once every year, which is a good thing for your supply of bird food. A flock of Evening Grosbeaks can clean you out faster than a Vegas casino.
Evening Grosbeaks are easy to identify with their heavy bill and bright plumage. They are black and yellow with white on their wings that is easy to spot when they are in flight. The Evening Grosbeak will arrive in winter months then virtually disappear when breeding season comes around. They build their nests in tall trees and are rather secretive about their courtship and nesting habits. They prefer mixed conifer forests and deciduous trees for seeds, budworms and larvae.
