MY NEWEST VISITOR – A ROSE CRESTED GROSBEAK

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

The  newest visitor to my own backyard – a  male rose-crested grosbeak !   I first spotted  him yesterday late afternoon and since then,  he has made  numerous  lingering trips to my black-oiled sunflower seed feeder.   Reading a bit more about my visitor,  I learned he is in the cardinal family,  generally spends his winters in South America but spends his summer breeding season in the north eastern half of the USA, of which, St. Louis, Missouri is at the bottom tip.   The female is  brownish  in color, so I will have to keep an optimist  watch for her visits. 

 

Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for reading!!
