The Black-headed Grosbeak is found throughout the western United States and into the southern parts of western Canada. The male, above, is recognized by its orange-brown breast and black head, wings and back. The female, below, is duller with stripes on the head.
The other major characteristic is the large bill - hence the name "gros (large) beak." It uses it to catch insects including butterflies. It also feeds on berries and seeds. The Black-headed Grosbeak is 8 1/4 in/ 24 cm long which makes it a bit smaller than an American Robin.
