Evening Grosbeaks

 
These are all pictures of male Evening Grosbeaks.  Large, colorful bird with a large beak to crush sunflower seeds.

 
I'm learning a new software program to process my photos, Lightroom 5, and it opens up a whole new learning experience.

 
I need to make a quilt inspired by the colors of his feathers.

 
I don't have one nice bird feeder due to bears.  I use an old wooden ladder with boards on each step for a feeding tray.  They seem to like it.

 

 

 
Enjoy the beauty of nature...

  4. We have the grosbeaks visit in late spring and stay for about 2 months. In July it gets too hot in the valley and they move up into the higher elevations. They eat us out of seeds every day.

  6. What a beautiful bird! I've never seen one of these. Isn't it wonderful how animals and birds have the most wonderful colors that always look perfect? (And would look great in a quilt ;o)

  7. What a beauty! We get Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in the spring for just a day or two as they migrate... some years I get to see them and some years I don't. I always enjoy the show!
