Pine grosbeaks, always willing (pic included)

Recommended Posts

In winter up here, find a stand of black ash in the lowlands, and you're likely to find pine grosbeaks harvesting the ash seeds.

Here are a pair from Lake Jeanette today, a ways up the Echo Trail.

Beautiful photo Steve!....and the pine grosbeaks tend to be very unafraid of us humans.....Last week I drove up to 3 females apparently picking at gravel on a side road ....they let me "inch" my truck up to within about 3 feet of em allowing me to roll down the window and get a few pics of em.....even then they seemed unaffraid being only 3' or so from my drivers side door...truly amazing!...I just wish I could have captured the red males smirk.gif..(and yes,these females were adjacent to an ash, highgrass, swamp)

A little dark Steve, but a great habitat shot. Those sure are pretty little birds. I've never seen one.

God bless,

Tom W

    • Do you have a code reader?  Try erasing it and see if it goes away?  The best investment I made was buying a cheap code reader for like $59 at Fleet Farm. I have cleared codes on 3 different vehicles over the years that I never had to bring into a shop for.  Most of them are just hiccups like misfires, once cleared they go away.   Most car dealers will charge around $80-90 to do a "Diagnostic".  I've paid for the thing 10 times over already.
