This Grosbeak is still hanging around bird alley and its favourite choice of food is black-oiled sunflower seeds. I found him feeding on the ground just in front of our bay window and I was able to get some close ups that show a few of its markingsthat I had not noticed before. Under each wing at the front is also a patch of its beautiful rose colour and down each side is a line of black dashes. how interesting! In the picture below you can also see the rpose wing patch and the black dashes!
The Grosbeak looks like he might even be smiling in the picture above. It was quiet and there were no other birds around at the time. I had already removed my feeders for the day and this bird seemed delighted to have found the seeds on the ground.
Today I am linking to Saturday Critters hosted by Eileen. Thank you Eileen for hosting this meme. Why not join the photo party with Eileen at http://viewingnaturewitheileen.blogspot.ca/
My apologies as I first called rhis grosbeak an evening Grosbeak, but I actually knew it was a Rose breasted grosbeak, I just made an error when tying in its name. Thank you for the correction in the comments section!
