Rosey Gros

Two males and one female Rose-breasted Grosbeak were hanging out at the Sandy Hook Bird Observatory feeders this weekend. It added some fun to my volunteer day trying to get photos of them. The feeder they were using wasn't much bigger than they were. You can really see that "Female Purple Finch on Steroids" look of the female.

Female purple finches and rose-breasted grosbeaks do look alike. I don't think I have ever confused them, though. There is just something unmistakable about the grosbeaks.
