WOWZA! He’s landed one day later than last year’s May 5th arrival!

What a world . . .

Rose-breasted Grosbeak Trans-Gulf Migration

  • Can be seen throughout the East in April-May
  • Settled and breeding by June
  • Fall migration late August to October for eastern Mexico and Central America; can travel as far as South America, spreading throughout Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador
  • “The courtship of the rose-breasted grosbeak, or its culmination, is a quiet, dignified act. There is none of the hot pursuit of the bobolink with almost a rape at the end. The two grosbeaks appear truly fond of each other. (A.C. Bent)” PHEUCTICUS LUDOVICIANUS (Linnaeus)
