Red-breasted grosbeaks.

I just filmed about 6 red-breasted grosbeaks in my hibiscus tree in Naples Florida today. There were about 5 babies and then a larger brown one. Never have seen anything like them before.

Comment
Among birds, as among humans, it is the father who lends his name to the family. Mrs. Grosbeak has not a red-colored feather on her. She is a streaked, brown bird, resembling an overgrown sparrow, with a thick finch bill. When her husband migrates to the tropics, his feather are said to be similar to hers, so that even his name, then does not fit.

Let us know Bonnie if you upload your video to youtube, and then I can add it to the site!
