Southern California Sighting

(apple Valley, Ca)

Yes, uncommon, rare, unimaganible! (I have been birding for 45+ years) Grew up in Minnesota, am aware of the Rose Breasted Grosbeak. Broke out bird book, and camera, flew off feeder before a pic! On finch feeder, others flew away due to size, superiority...waiting for a return visit...

Had a Java Sparrow a few years ago

Not called Misfit Ranch for nothing here, kind of like Dr. Doolittles
