They'll over-winter here, if they can find open water, usually in
springs, and food sources like crab-apple, wild grape, buckthorn
berries, hackberries, etc. Huge flocks of them spend the winter along
the Mississippi and Minnesota River bottoms. They're a regular winter
fixture at Crosby park in St. Paul, which has springs along the north
side of the big lake, and a running stream exiting the east marsh.
