Mating pair of Rose Breasted Grosebeaks at my feeder in CT!

by Dana
(Killingworth, CT)

For 3 years now, we have had what we think is the same pair of mating Grosbeaks at our feeder. Last year we saw an immature female too (I said to my daughter, "Oh, Mr. and Mrs. Grosbeak had a daughter!")- this year we have a baby female AND a baby male! I hope they keep returning...they are beautiful birds! (My daughter and son call Mrs. Grosbeak "Sea Turtle Head" because she does indeed look a little bit like a sea turtle in the face :)
