Black-headed Grosbeaks are common in the American West, and are a familiar sight to many bird enthusiasts. Males are easy to identify with their black heads and cinnamon-colored eye stripe. Females are brown with white stripes and yellow or buff-color on their body.
Black-headed Grosbeaks don’t mind being around people, and will build their nests in yards and gardens. Easy to attract with grains and seeds, they will happily make their home in your nesting boxes. If you have the right combination of low shrubs and tall trees, that is. They also love fruit and berries, so safeguard your berry bushes if you want the fruit for yourself.
