Uncommon Birds at the Feeder: Rose-breasted Grosbeak (male)

The arrival of the Rose-breasted Grosbeak at the feeder yesterday signaled the official beginning of autumn here in Middle Tennessee. They will hang around for just a few days to fuel up for their flight down to the tropics, where they spend the winter. We won’t see them again until early next spring when they head back north to their breeding grounds.
