Male Blue Grosbeak looking over shoulder, perched in reeds (Sandra Calderbank)

This little beauty is the male blue grosbeak, of course as with most birds the male is very colorful and showy and the female is a warm brown. These lovely birds don”t live in the Blue Ridge Mountains where I live. I spotted this one in Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge ┬árecently. This bright blue bird looks like an Indigo Bunting with epaulets.
