Carol Hardenburg reported hosting evening grosbeaks on her property in Brocton on Nov. 19. The rare evening grosbeaks (8 inches) are back - but just briefly. They are the biggest finches that will visit us. At my feeders are the purple finches (6 inches), house finches (6 inches), and American goldfinches (4.5 inches). Then, in the wild, depending on the time of year, the white-winged crossbills (6.5 inches) make a rare appearance. Pine siskins (5 inches), and common redpolls (5 inches) are much more abundant in the warmer seasons.
