    It has become rare for me to see these guys, especially on my property. I think that I have been seeing the females for a few days but this is a first sighting of the male--a momentary thrill.

    I decided to head to Cools Pond for a short after work visit. I have not been there for a few weeks and thought some new visitors may be there. I did not expect to have a first encounter. I have never seen a Grosbeak before and tried to capture a clear image in the dark tree cover. I love Cools...

    While shooting the Red-naped Sapsucker, this group of 4 (3 male and 1 female) Evening Grosbeak suddenly came into sight, over 50 foot away. Hurried for a few shots, and they were gone. This is among the best one I managed. I had some hesitation in determine the crop, but finally I decided to...

    Took a trip north to lower Adirondak Mountains today in search of Evening Grosbeaks again. Found these beautiful winter finches at a feeder in the small Adirondak town of Stoney Creek, NY which is at about 2400 ft. elevation. There were also many Common Redpolls and a few immature Whitewinged...

    I liked this shot even tho you don't really see the face, I like the way it shows off those white patches on the grosbeaks back.

    Hi Folks! Yes...I'm still alive. I've been busy working alot of hours and when weather permits...being out there enjoying my surroundings. As you can see, my Evening Grosbeaks have still been one of my favorite daily visitors!

    "What makes you think I'm drinking the bathwater??"

    Can't a girl drool without being accused of drinking the bathwater?? Not the most "natural" setting for the water theme, but I was so happy to see the Grosbeaks!!
  16. YAY.....They like my new feeders!!!

    YAY.....They like my new feeders!!!

    We put some new feeders out in my backyard so I can enjoy them from the deck and I am trying to make a little garden surrounding the two feeder poles and the birdbath. I am pleased with the results of my guest list!!!

    These birds are just beautifully awesome! They are sporadic visitors to my feeders throughout the entire year, so I never know when they will decide to show! Unfortunely, this picture doesn't do it justice. Hopefully, they will visit again soon!

    This is one for the life list. Had spent the day in an area called "Trail of 100 Giants": a stand of Giant Sequoias, at about 7800 ft. elevation. My brother and I descided to continue on to a small mountain hamlet called "Ponderosa"; population about 200. There we had a...
