The vibrant, spirited song and distinctive sharp tick call note of the Rose-breasted Grosbeak are common sounds heard among Manitoba’s mixed woodlands in spring and summer.
Male: black head, throat and back; red breast and underwings; white rump and belly.
Female: lacks the magnificent colours of the male but she shares his talent for beautiful song.
I thought he looks mighty good against the blue sky.
