Rose-breasted Grosbeak Vs Downy Woodpecker

So not long after I shot the first bird I saw this morning, I went back out to see yet another one. This Rose-breasted Grosbeak is definitely a different bird than the first one I shot below. Notice no black and white spots on the belly and the head is much darker...and on this guy you can just barely see a little red peaking underneath the wing....I really never thought I'd become such an avid birder...I swear this is like an addiction....well guess who won "this bird seed is mine match"?


  1. What a stand-off! Great capture. So who won??? I'm betting the Grosbeak did!

  2. Nope, it was the Woodpecker!
