Bird Pic Of The Week

Rose-breasted Grosbeak

(Pheucticus ludovicianus)

Where: Door County, WI • Chambers Island

Notes: I think one of the things that continues to amaze me about birds is that there are in nearly every place and in every habitat on earth. Each visit to a new place brings a new variety of species and renewed intrigue. In years past, during spring migration, this member of the Grosbeak family would occasionally appear at my backyard feeder or birdbath for a few days in central Virginia. What a trill to look out and see this striking bird in the yard, with its large seed-crushing beak and colorful plumage. But the last two years, we have not had any such visits from this migrant, as they head northward and to higher elevations to breed. So it was impressive to see this species at its breeding grounds in Wisconsin this past spring. They were coming to both the bird feeder and to the newly installed birdbath regularly, so I could not resist the urge to capture a shot or two. It took some persistence, which finally paid off with this shot. I liked it enough that it was chosen for the 2015 iPhotoBirds Calendar as well. I look forward to the day when we get a return visit to our backyard habitat.
