Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Posted on May 11, 2016

This male Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus) was a thrilling find for RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser’s next shoot in the Audubon series. He says he always loves their red bibs shining through the forest canopy at this time of year. For many that have the good fortune of attracting them to their feeders at home, their return signals the beginning of spring. Photographed for the Meet Your Neighbours global biodiversity project in Connecticut while on assignment for The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History.
