Male Rose-breasted Grosbeak
During the breeding season Rose-breasted Grosbeaks eat a lot of insects, as well as wild fruit and seeds. Grosbeaks usually glean their food from dense foliage and branches.The picture of this male Rose-breasted Grosbeak was taken at the Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York near the Dell Water using the Canon 5D MarkIII with the Canon 300mm lens with a 2X extender.
The Blue–headed Vireo has similar plumage year round and does not drastically change its appearance during the breeding season. It can be characterized by its olive green upper body, two bold yellow wing bars down the edge of its wing, and a deep blue-grey crown from which it gets its name. The juvenile plumage of immature Blue-headed Vireos is not distinct but very similar to the adult plumage.
