Female spent all this past fall and winter on her own with other birds but no other Grosbeaks.

How do we know .. myself and another “birder” went every day to where she was.. waited for her to come out of hiding.. and watched until she ate. Then went on our way. We hoped another Grosbeak would come along, spend time with her.. but none came.. I did hear that there was a sighting of a large gathering of Grosbeaks over on the Quebec side across the river from where we were.. but none ventured away from the group.
With the warmer weather, I am wondering if she will eventually move along – so far, she is staying put.. she has done well, still healthy looking and spends her time eating with other “ground” feeders. all smaller birds.. but she seems at ease with them.. Interesting how she has won our hearts – simply by being “herself”… She has become a “little star” for the photographers who are lucky to catch a glimpse of her.
