This bold Grosbeak perched within a few feet of me while I sat near my feeding stations one May afternoon. His visit lasted long enough to grab some food across a few hours and then he was gone. Probably headed a bit farther away. His breast was bright with color, and I was happy to catch him with my lens in the seconds he remained on the perch hook.
Category 7: Bold, Bright, and Beautiful
Species: Rose-breasted Grosbeak
