According to my bird field guide the female and male look the same. Their nest is a cup type and both male and female construct the nest.Usually 4-6 eggs pale blue with brown markings.They have one brood per year and they feed on cedar cones from cedar trees, fruit and insects.
They travel mostly in flocks moving from area to area looking for berries.
A few years back they stopped for water in my bird bath.
