These birds visit our feeder every Winter/Spring and while they are beautiful to behold, they are loud and crowd out my local birds. They get pretty rowdy and fly into my windows sometimes. I love that my kiddos know them and can laugh at their antics.
Large and brightly colored, the Evening Grosbeak is a noticeable winter visitor to bird feeders during irruption years. When a flock settles down to feed, it can clean out a surprisingly large amount of sunflower seeds in a short time. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Evening_Grosbeak/id
