Black-headed Grosbeak — is that a drunken Robin?
That’s no Robin — it’s a Black-headed Grosbeak. What a great find.

Imagine you are sitting in your car on the side of the road near a forested stand of mixed trees and shrubs.

You scan the area for the bird you are hearing call. The call got your attention because it sounds like an American Robin but something just seems a bit off. It sounds a bit like a drunken Robin.

Have they is retired, colorblind and enjoys been eating too many berries?

Motion catches your eye and you raise your binoculars to look closely. That’s no Robin — it’s a Black-headed Grosbeak. What a great find.

Black-headed Grosbeak winter in the tropical lowlands of Mexico but spread throughout the western United States to breed.
