Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Species Details

Found in open deciduous woodlands, it nests in the mountains of East Tennessee but is often seen at bird feeders here as it migrates through. The diet consists of insects, seeds, and berries. The male is black and white with a rose-red breast spot, the female mottled brown with a white eyeliner. The song is a rich, whistled warble, sung from treetops, the call note a metallic “chink”.
