The Rose Breasted Grosbeak is 19 cm long and weighs 47 g. It has dark upperparts, white underparts and a large pale bill. The adult male has a black head, wings and upperparts and a bright rose-red patch on its breast; the wings have white patches and rose red linings. The adult female has dark grey upperparts, a white stripe over the eye, streaked underparts and yellowish wing linings.
The song resembles a more refined version of the American Robin’s, but with more feeling: “Almost as if it has taken singing lessons” as stated by Roger Tory Peterson.
