Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

The rose-breasted grosbeak is a medium sized passerine. They summer in the deciduous woodlands of the north eastern half of the United States and up into central Canada. They winter in the tropical forests of Central America and northwestern South America. They are omnivores, eating a combination of seeds, tree buds, fruit and insects. They will sometimes cross breed with the black-headed grosbeak where there ranges cross in the middle of the United States.

What a beauty! They are welcome to visit my yard anytime. We have tree buds, seeds and insects. Fruit, too, if they explore the compost pile.
