Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Time: 6:40 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Center

Common Name: Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Scientific Name: Pheucticus ludovicianus

Comments: Look for these birds in forest edges and woodlands. Listen, too, for their distinctive voices. They sound like American Robins, but listen for an extra sweetness, as if the bird had operatic training; they also make a sharp chink like the squeak of a sneaker.
