The Blue Grosbeak is a small migratory songbird. They spend the winter in Central and South America, while breeding across parts of the southern US and northern Mexico.
Male Blue Grosbeaks, like our cute original Birdorable illustration, have beautiful plumage of bright blue accented by chestnut-colored wing bars. Females are mostly brown. Both have heavy bills.
