We have 200 school kids in today and tomorrow, besides the regular banding, so I don’t have a lot of time to post or read other blogs until the weekend. But here’s the bird of the day: Rose breasted Grosbeak. Aptly named – he bit me – hard! Nursing bruised fingers.
Notice the lovely pink underwing coverts (wing lining feathers). On the drab-brown females, they are yellow.
