Evening Grosbeak

The Evening Grosbeak is actually a large finch, a fact that many people don't realize! During the winter, the male Evening Grosbeak's brightly colored feathers make it easy to see at bird feeders.

The bill of the Evening Grosbeak is so strong that the bird uses it like a nutcracker to eat its favorite nuts and fruit pits.
