Rose Breasted Grosbeak

My favorite bird in my third visit was the Rose Breasted Grosbeak. It is reddish under the chest and wings. It eats nuts and seeds. The bird we saw was a male.

Facts we learned while writing this post:
First we listened to the call. You can hear it here.
It lives in woodland areas near water.
It migrates to Central and northern South America.

This is a picture of a male rose breasted grosbeak in the spring. The one we saw was in the fall, and it didn't have as much red.


  1. Arden, this is my favorite bird in the world. Thank you for posting about it.

  2. Thanks for leaving a note! It is one my favorite birds, too! (he's grinning big time!)
    Love, Arden
