Here is a picture of Ron banding a male Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, taken on 070512. The males have very bright red colors (see the next photo) to attract the females to them, while the females are plain colors so they don't stand out to predators. The babies are also dull in color so they can blend in easier with their surroundings. You can see the banding material on the desk in front of him.    photo    jfj
