Female grosbeak, perched on one of the lilac branches that broke during October’s blizzard.
This male grosbeak looks downright angry! 😀
We have seen very few grosbeaks this year, so it was a real treat when this female pine grosbeak took a break on one of the lilac branches.
Happy third day of Christmas!
I should be able to get back to regular posting, now. 🙂
We have seen very few grosbeaks this year. Last year, we were seeing large numbers of them, so it was lovely when this one little guy showed up, earlier this month. A cheerful splash of colour!
A male pine grosbeak in a spruce tree.
Not much shelter from the wind in there!
A couple more bird pictures from February.
Some days, we would get huge crowds of birds, all at once. They’d fly in and out, en masse.
When I was taking these, it was all redpolls and pine grosbeaks. There were so many, they seemed to have driven away the chickadees and blue jays. For a while, at least.
From February; a female pine grosbeak, in for a landing!
More February pine grosbeak photos; it’s time for the ladies! 🙂
