They are a migratory bird that enjoys the summer months in the Central and Southern Americas. They care for their families by building the nests and share in the incubation stage of their eggs by sitting on the eggs about one-third of each day, and sings quietly while on egg duty. The female also sings.
The Rose Breasted Grosbek’s beak is designed for seed extraction. They eat seeds, berries, insects, and when plentiful, the caterpillars, beetles, gypsy moths, and their larvae.
