Evening Grosbeaks - November 18, 2012

Evening Grosbeaks at Marienville, Forest County, PA
 
They're baaaaaaaack...
 
After a pair of tantalizing October/November flights of Evening Grosbeaks in 2007 and 2010, both of which failed to materialize into grosbeak winters, we are once again seeing large numbers of Evening Grosbeaks in Pennsylvania in 2012. The difference this time: big numbers, and a few long-staying flocks. Most notably this year, a growing flock of 50+ has been present in Marienville, Forest County for most of the past two weeks. I could not resist making the trip to see them, to see a feeder jam packed full of Evening Grosbeaks here in Pennsylvania for the first time since I was a teenager. I was not disappointed...
