Crimson-collared Grosbeak, Rhodothraupus celaeno


Crimson-collared Grosbeak, female, 2/27/11, Williams Wildscapes, Pharr, TX
The Crimson-collared Grosbeak is a major rarity in the United States; this one had been
present for much of the winter in Allen Williams's splendidly bird-friendly back yard
when I photographed it there in late February of 2011. It's the male that has the crimson
collar.
