Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

Pheucticus ludovicianus

Many bird lovers consider the song of these birds to be the finest in the world, and liken it to a robin with opera training!

These birds winter in southern Mexico and south into northwestern South America. When spring comes they migrate north to breed in territories with broad-leaf deciduous woodlands that stretch from New England and southeast Canada and west through the Great Lakes and northwest through southern Manitoba, central Saskatchewan, most of Alberta, a little on northeast British Columbia and some of south central Northwest Territories.
