Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus) - Reported Aug 07, 2019 19:50 by Bob Busch - My Home Feeder, Curry, Oregon - Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=42.0590159,-124.2641401&ll=42.0590159,-124.2641401 - Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58830235 - Comments: "Twilight observation; only four birds in 25 minutes, but one was the Rose-breasted Grosbeak (presumably) that I've seen and reported two other times. Notes: red throat patch became, downward, a midline streak of red; both beaks are the same color; he stood on his left leg often, right leg tucked up tight, and the right side toenails were longer than the left (injured leg?); black legs; breast not pure white (as initially described on 8/4 sighting), but included areas of muted gray (due to twilight?); no hint of a lighter eyebrow or crown stripe; could not see under wings. Stayed on feeder about 2 minutes, observed through binoculars. No photo possibility at time."
