I think the rose-Breasted Grosbeaks are one of the prettiest songbirds in America. They only migrate Through Tennessee so are here for two weeks in spring and two weeks in Fall. I NEVER get any in my yard but some state and city parks near me get hundreds so I go there to see them. They have a distinctive, "Pink!" call that sounds like tapping a wine glass with a ten-penny nail.

Thorny - I had the honor of seeing one once in my front yard and once in my back on the deck, but each time only for a few fleeting moments. They surely are pretty!!!

They are stunning. I've seen flocks of eight to ten at a time swarming the feeders at some of our state parks here in Tennessee.

Actually I did very little photoshopping on the pictures. That is the exact color red of the breast and the patch of red on the chest is very close to a heart shape. I just modified it slightly to make a perfect heart shape.

I did only minimal photoshopping to get the desired results.
