Monday Nature Mystery
We are pleased to announce the winner of our Monday Nature Mystery, Rebecca Bracken! Please email us your snail mail address and preference for a hat or tote bag to: [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]?subject=Monday%20Nature%20Mystery%20Winner!)
Congratulations to Rebecca for correctly identifying the female Blue Grosbeak (Passerina caerulea). Blue Grosbeaks are striking summer residents with their brilliant blue feathers and chestnut colored wings bars. We agree with All About Birds ([link removed]) that the cinnamon-colored females are just as lovely! They prefer shrubby habitat for nesting and in ideal conditions can raise two broods in a season.
