As a matter of fact, the evening grosbeak goes to bed at dark, like all other respectable, reputable birds.
Only one species of grosbeak appears to be common in the Himalayas.
During bright moonshiny nights the grosbeak sings sweetly, but not loudly.
If I was to see the grosbeak and make sure of him, it must be done at once.
I saw a grosbeak seize, shake, and devour a caterpillar about two inches in length.
Strange we did not see them before, but the explanation is the grosbeak was singing.
The grosbeak sang on, a big Turnus butterfly sailed through the arbour and poised over the table.
Philip leaned back against the arbour, watching the grosbeak as it hunted food between a tomato vine and a day lily.
It is an easy matter, therefore, for the grosbeak to break off a single seed.
There are doubtless good reasons for the colouring of both the grosbeak and the oriole; what these reasons are we know not.
