Camera Critters # 116 - Grosbeak


The Rose Breasted Grosbeak came to the feeder. It wasn't very co-operative.
It did get a bite to eat.
It then did a great pose for the food.
See a lot of other neat critters above.

Beautiful bird and one of my favorites. It was the bird that got me "into" birding.

What a beautiful, colorful bird. I've never seen one here. He really did a nice pose for you.

I've never seen one of these guys.
You did a great job getting a pic.

You obviously know how to get him to pose. We must not be serving the proper menu since we can't get a Grosbeak to pose for us.

Michael said...

Wow. Wasn't expecting him to look like that when he turned around. He looks like he's been stabbed. Nice capture.

Beautiful Grosbeak pictures, Tom... I especially like that last one. I hope they stop back by here on their way south in the Fall. Such a beautiful bird..

Love the shot of the bird with the fake one. :) I've missed visiting your site and hope to be able to return for more of the visual feast soon!

Tom, you are so lucky! I've only ever had one of these visit my feeders, and it was during spring migration last year, so its plumage wasn't very lovely. I keep hoping he'll stop back by, but so far no sign of him. Knowing you have them in your yard gives me hope, though. You aren't that far north of me.

I'm glad he finally posed for you. :)

I think he a case of stage fright. Glad he overcame that hurdle. He's a very handsome bird.
