Singing Lessons by mydigitalmind Singing Lessons by mydigitalmind
A Rose-breasted Grosbeak's song sounds like "a robin who has taken singing lessons." Hence the title.

Pretty. Reminds me of a Bleeding Heart Dove.

"CHIRP!!!"

Unfortunately I rarely see these birds, usually only if they're dead. :(

I was on my second level deck, but he still was not high up. We also caught two of them down low during a walk singing their lungs away. Guess we were lucky :)

I've never seen this species, but they're so pretty! The red mark on the chest reminds me a bit of the Bleeding Heart pigeons (or some gory feeding frenzy, which is of course the opposite of what grosbeaks do) :)

Haha. Well.. with that beak I'm sure they can do damage to more than just seeds :D

Wow, brilliant capture! The colours and pose are beautiful! The only thing that stops this from being a perfect shot is the fact that the photo looks quite busy with all the branches, however this is mostly unavoidable as it is just the way the tree was. It is just a minor drawback, and overall I think this photo is fantastically captured! :D

Thanks! I thought about cropping it more because of the branches, but the only thing that would work in is a square crop (which I don't like to do). So yes, I agree about the business. I'm hoping that the bring bird can lure eyes his way :D
