A while ago we looked at the male Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a big, beautiful black and white and red dude. This is the female with her earthy brown and white tones, and she’s a beaut too. This is a bird that used to catch me off guard all the time. Keeping in mind that grosbeaks are a relatively large bird, with her unique beak and distinctively raptor-like coloration, my first thought was always New hawk species! What should I name her!?!?
