I have been noticing the male and female Grosbeak at the feeders for over a week.
Last year was the first time I had ever seen these birds.
Posted a picture with 6 in a tree in front of cottage.
Pleased I was able to catch an image of the male.
So colorful he is with his rose colored vest...
Reading about this bird it stated they were common birds of the forest.
Oh, I like that description
and had the thought
that maybe that is a good description of me.
As I sit in my old rocking chair with camera in hand
I can hear the really big woodpeckers tapping away
in the woods, also the soulful cooing of the doves.
Their sound seem to cover me with a blanket of peace.
Before going in for the evening I noticed this beautiful
woodpecker had just landed in a nearby tree..
While this cottage was being built a large section of this
tree came down. Was lucky it did not fall on home.
I would like a camera where I could get better
closeups. But then do not need two cameras....
