  17. Rose-breasted Grosbeak, VA Japanese garden LINK
    DATE: Jan 27, 2018 @ 11:47am, 8 month(s) ago
    Hi all,
    
    There's a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak at VA Japanese Garden high in a tall flowering eucalyptus, foraging with the Baltimore Oriole found a few days ago by Dick Barth (and with an imm. male Bullocks Oriole). 1135am, Jan 27.
    
    None of these birds are easy to find since they bury themselves deep in the eucalyptus.
