About the Evening Grosbeak

The Evening Grosbeak is a stocky finch with a heavy, thick bill. Males have yellow foreheads and bodies, with dark heads and shoulders, and prominent white wing patches. Females are olive-brown, with light underparts.

Evening Grosbeaks breed across parts of southern Canada into parts of the western United States. They are irruptive migrants - residents in their breeding grounds year-round, occasionally traveling in large flocks outside of their summer homes during the winter months in search of food.

The Evening Grosbeak was the American Birding Association (ABA) Bird of the Year 2012.
