This little guy, a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, is only an occasional visitor to my backyard bird feeder. They migrate through this area in the spring and fall. In the spring, they’re headed to the northeast part of the U.S. and southeast Canada for breeding. In the fall, they head south where they spend the winter in forests and semiopen habitats in Central and South America, often in middle elevations and highlands (up to about 11,000 feet in Colombia).
They are a much more colorful bird than the usual doves, blackbirds, and cowbirds we usually see hanging around.
