Rose-breasted Grosbeak (male)

One of my favorite birds has finally arrived back in our area.  This beautiful Rose-breasted Grosbeak is migrating through on his way to his northern breeding grounds.  Not always easy to spot because of his timid nature, he may remain carefully hidden among foliage before cautiously venturing out to get his fill of black sunflower seeds from the feeders.

“Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. That’s a beautiful bird – I know we have them in Michigan because the Wild Birds Unlimited I follow recently showed them at their backyard feeder, but I’ve never been lucky enough to see one.
