The pleasure of spring bird watching seldom ceases in Bird Alley. Earlier
this week my husband had commented that it had been a long time since we had seen Evening Grosbeaks. There have been times when they seemed to arrive in droves, and yesterday what did I see in the afternoon ?,but one handsome male Evening Grosbeak. It seemed as if it was just passing through as it just perched on a branch before flying off. Unfortunately its face was obscured by an opening leaflet. but the yellow cap can be seen. A black shadow is misleading on its breast as that is not part of his natural colouring.
I really like grosbeak picture with the semi blurred background with blue sky highlights. Nature is so beautiful!!! The use of a lower f stop at 5.6 causes the semi blurred background in the picture.
