  1. I'm stunned by the male/female difference:
    Rose-breasted Grosbeak A stocky, medium-sized songbird with a large triangular-shaped bill. Adult males in breeding plumage are black and white with a brilliant red patch extending from the black throat down the middle of the breast.

    1. Yep, huge difference. I had to go back to Manuel to ask which bird this is as visually it's hard to find, the male is more often photographed. Posted 11 months ago
      1. I don't know that I've ever seen a female, or at least I didn't notice if I did. Posted 11 months ago
