Evening grosbeak

Here are a whole flock of Evening GrosBeaks

hanging out at my neighbour's feeder. I stayed there
a good half hour, standing in front of them
at a good distance capturing photos.
They are quite entertaining to watch...
I added one with a Blue jay and you can see the
difference in size.

Thanks so much for sharing Gigi!

flock of grosbeaks
by: Anonymous

I have a flock of about 20-25 evening grosbeaks that come to our black oil seed feeded daily. We are in the middle of a winter storm, and I keep the area below shoveled and the feeders full, they are everywhere! On the ground, and all over the feeders, I am trying to get a decent picture of them, but they are still a little skittish, even though they have been coming to our feeders for at least a couple of weeks, I live in WNY and wonder if they are a winter bird here? I thought they may have been just passing through, but seem to be staying put near our home.

That was an awsome post. Keep it up and love those grosebeaks. it is really hard to get that many birds on one feeder. It seems that some other bird like a black bird comes along and scars them off.

I have found watching these birds and squirrels is better than watching tv.

I think watching nature is helping to calm us down and lowering blood pressure.

Good job
