Juvenile (Baby) Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Juvenile Redbreasted grosbeak
I finally captured him! My male juvenile Rose-breasted Grosbeak, looking a little more mottled and worse for wear than last weekend.

Who could not be enchanted by his baby-face. And he was calling so piteously for someone to feed him. He's not ready to go it alone!

He seems a bit put off by he uninvited company!

On top pf the unfamiliar stripes ans spotted appearance, this species could not be confused with another.
