Subject: Hybrid Black-headed x Rose-breasted Grosbeak
Someone shared with Audubon Arkansas a photo of a grosbeak that the observer called a Black-headed, but it has a reddish triangle on the breast, indicating it is a hybrid. The bird was photographed recently (this past weekend?) at Christview Ministries Center outside Eureka Springs. I searched the Bird Records Database, eBird, and James & Neal but can't find any other records of a hybrid. A first for Arkansas!
