This bird is supposed to be easy to spot in early spring before the trees leaf out, but we
have only had the fortune to spot one male that stopped by for a drink of water in 1998.
Female Rosebreasted Grosbeaks seem more common and we actually photographed two of them.
Still, these birds are at the top of our list of the most beautiful birds.
