Rose-breasted grosbeak

A beautiful Rose-Breasted Grosbeak showed up at our feeder this morning! According to the Cornell Ornithology Lab they breed here in Iowa in the summer. I hope he has a mate and they stay in the area!

  1. For the first time in years, I have had these grosbeaks in droves. Usually, I have the evening variety by the hundreds. This year I was able to watch their courting dances directly outside my window during the spring, but the Evening Grosbeaks were in short supply. Odd. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I have a client that has one of these at their birdfeeder this morning thanks for the picture.
