    Bowdoin Birds Bowdoin Birds Presentation Transcript

    • Bowdoin Birds Spring, 2008
    • Evening Grosbeak Male. These colorful birds visit deciduous woodlands and suburban areas. In spring, an outer coating on the bill peels off exposing the blue-green color beneath. This was our first view of a male of this species.
    • Female evening grosbeak flies in for a landing with the male.
    • These grosbeaks only visited for two consecutive days.
    • The Evening Grosbeak pair was a delight to have around.
    • Rose-breasted Grosbeak Male
    • This species is in the same family as cardinals. The heavy, pinkish bill is a prominent characteristic. They eat potato beetles and larvae, so they are great to have around your vegetable garden.
    • Such a handsome profile. My, what big nostrils you have.
    • Rose-breasted Grosbeak Male. We know spring has sprung when these grosbeaks arrive. Check out his gorgeous black and white patterning.
    • Blue Jays are in the same family as crows and magpies. Even though they enjoy sunflower seeds, they are known to bury acorns for later retrieval.
    • Blue Jays may be rather raucous, but we enjoy the few that visit our feeder. They tend to be very shy and fly off if we try to go outdoors to photograph them.
