More Pine Grosbeaks for Ruby Tuesday 2

     Looking very closely at these berries shown above it appears that they have been mulitated and have  not been eaten as they have not remained roundly intact.  What is happening here I believe, is that the Pine Grosbeaks have eaten only the kernel seed within the red fleshy covering.  This same thing occurs when this species feeds on the bitter cranberries in  our own yard in Bird Alley.

   In this  photo above  the Grosbeak is on the ground under the tree.
