Grosbeak sighting (5.1.2012

by Rachel
(Lansing, MI)

I'm in the townhouse portion of a city near a park/woodlot. I had my first rose-breasted grosbeak pair show up at my feeder! I have several feeders up, but the one they decided to use was an all mesh feeder with a fruit and nut mix (Kaytee brand.) They didn't stay long, but it was long enough for me to get enough characteristics for an id. He was so lovely, I had to google it to find him since I couldn't find a picture of it even in my birdbook.
