We were delighted to see the first Grosbeak of the season today and it is good to have him back eating on the feeder. In the world of Tomorrow, I hope we will always see these beautiful Grosbeaks.

    Such a goodlooking bird! I wonder if it sings too.

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (6 May 2009):

    Yes, it does sing, according to Sibley Field Guide of birds here is the information: "Voice: Song similar to Black-headed Grosbeaks but slower, lower and less choppy. Call a sharp squeaky iik sounding like sneakers on a gym floor."
