We always know spring is here when we get this question. It means the Rose-breasted Grosbeak is migrating north. We follow its migration as emails arrive, first from Florida and then a few days later from South Carolina or Tennessee. Take a look at the All About Birds Online Bird Guide and you’ll learn more about this beautiful migrant.

You can also try to identify a mystery bird by using our Merlin Bird ID app. The Merlin app asks a series of questions, like where you are located, and the colors of the bird, and then gives you a list of possible birds you may be seeing.
