Rose Breasted Grosbeak




This post was written almost 1 year ago.
Last night as I sat on my little porch
these special birds were at my feeder.
I could not get an image
and remembered writing about them in the past...

4/11 - Post

Turning my bed down for evening
Looked out my bedroom window
in the bird feeder was this bird
Picture taken through blinds
Has some bright red on chest
black and white body
and yellow beak

Enlarge for a good look

Never saw one like this before

Just answered my question
of what is it...
found online
it is a
Rose Breasted Grosbeak :)

Indeed that is the kind of bird it is. We don't see them any more around here. Used to have them when I was a kid.

Balisha and Judy, saw another bird a while ago - new one to me. Could not get the camera quick enough to take a picture. Maybe it will return...

Wow, a nice "catch" for your birding life-list. They are a beautiful bird and I hope he stays around. They love Wood Haven!
Thank you for sharing this with us.

I have not seen one of these in my neck of the woods. I'll bet you were so surprised and so thrilled. YOu are finding this a lovely new home and the visitors are great.

Marcia and Tabor, thanks for visiting. Viewed several new birds lately and not quick enough with camera :)

Ernestine, around 5 years ago, we suddenly had a male and a female grosbeak, and then BABIES! The next generations have come back every year, stayed about two months and then leave-maybe to visit you! We named the males Willy (due to red kerchief around his neck that reminded us of Willy Nelson and of course the brown female with large beak is named Wilma!
