We stayed in a wonderful (modern) "log cabin" in the woods. There were birds all around, with bird feeders hanging from the main floor deck. We saw our "usual" black-capped chickadees, nuthatches, goldfinches, (flocks of?) ruby throated hummingbirds, Baltimore Orioles, and Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, etc.
Imagine my surprise, when the first birds I spotted and photographed were the birds below!! "What?" I wondered.
Guess what! These are immature male Rose Breasted Grosbeaks!! (The first clue that they were Grosbeaks was their bills. Take a Gander!)
This is also an immature male Rose Breasted Grosbeak ... further along in his development. I also was able to take this photo.
The following photo was borrowed from an internet search. The photographer was identified as Gary Tyson.
