I received an e-mail with an attached photo yesterday from Elkton resident, Paula Swanson. She had just photographed this Rose-breasted Grosbeak at her back-yard feeder. It took a while for my brain to kick into gear, and to realize what she had. This is a bird that for the most part resides east of the Rockies. There have been very few sighting in Oregon, and none that I could find in Douglas County. It is indeed a rare sighting. Fortunately she got this great photo so there can be no doubt about what she saw. Thanks Paula.
