cool-temperate North America, seen here at a bog
I spotted this at the Wainfleet bog, about 30 minute drive from my house. It was my first time there, it's an interesting place but access into the thick of it is tough. I saw a lot of dragonflies, a lot of birds, a few butterflies, a deer and a lot of snakes! This was only my second time spotting a rose-breasted grosbeak. The first was at Marcy's Woods. This bird was actually pretty cool. Most birds I see fly away as I approach or take out my camera, but not this one. He saw me on the ground but hardly moved while I was able to change lenses and get a better viewing position.
