Incredibly beautiful bird !!
I like to feed birds and have many feeders. I’ve always thought the Rose-breasted Grosbeak is amongst the most beautiful birds alive. I always count myself blessed when I see one on the feeders. Today I was sitting in my office and heard a thud on the glass pane on the outside door. Sure enough a bird had crashed into it and I saw it was a Grosbeak. I gave it a bit to recover but it still wouldn’t fly off, so I gently picked it up and sat down with it in the shade. It was always somewhat alert but made no attempt to move. I hoped it was just stunned so I sat with it for around 15-20 minutes and then it flew over to a nearby shrub. All seems well.
