Rose-breasted Grosbeak (pair)

Pheucticus ludovicianus

Description:

The male Rose-breasted Grosbeak, boldly patterned in black, white, and rose, is easily identified. The drab, striped female, however, is more of a challenge, resembling a large sparrow or finch. A common bird of forests and second growth, the grosbeak's song is like that of the robin, only as sung by an opera singer, being mellower and more sweetly melodic.

Notes:

The pictures consist of two pictures of the male, the female in flight and the female perched.
