Observer: Josh Simons

Observation Date: 5/18/20

Observation Time: 9:00 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill area

Common Name: Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Scientific Name: Pheucticus ludovicianus

Comments: The male rose-breasted grosbeak is one of Sharon’s more photogenic songbirds, especially on a sunny morning. The female is drab brown. Its song has a melodic, flute-like quality. If you listen to a recording of its song and learn to recognize it, you might find one by listening.
