Rose breasted Grosbeaks
(Pheucticus ludovocianus)

Crooked River - Wednesday, May 30, 2007 by: Helen Carson
These pictures of the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, male and female, were taken by Lyle Carson. In the spring we see a very large variety of birds coming through our yard and stopping at the feeders. Many stay for the summer, including this strikingly handsome fellow.

This Grosbeak is about 7-8 ½ inches. In flight rose-red wing linings can be seen. The female is streaked, like a large sparrow with yellow wing linings.

The Rose-Breasted Grosbeak winters in the U.S., W. Indies, Mexico and Peru.
