Pine Grosbeak on a branch

A rare winter resident of southern Wisconsin and uncommon in the north, the pine grosbeak is a robin-sized finch. Look at the thick bill, great for cracking seeds. The male has the rosy plumage while the female is mostly gray with tinges of dull yellow on the head and rump.

These grosbeaks like oil-type or hulled sunflower seeds.
