[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pine grosbeaks are the largest of the northern finches. They seem quite tame and do not immediately take flight when startled which can make them a fun bird to search for while bird watching.

They are especially beautiful in the winter time when the bright red coloring of the males is nicely offset by the white snow. They also gather together in large flocks which again, make them fun to watch.

Pine Grosbeaks can be found in Canada and the Northern States of the U.S. year round. Unlike most birds, they are most commonly seen during the winter months when their bright foliage stands out well in the tops of pine and spruce trees.
They can also be found in the northern forests of Europe and Russia.

Female pine grosbeaks are not as bright as the males. They have no red coloring. Their bodies are grey and their heads and necks are an orange or rust color. The wings and tail are dark brown with white wing bars.

Good portrait of this colorful bird. tfs.

Hi Peter,
This is excellant. I can't believe that you shot the female and the male in almost the exact pose and on the same brach. I love the inquisitive look she is giving you. Perfect capture for you. Keep them coming.
