male and female Evening Grosbeak for Mellow Yellow Monday

   Only for one day last week did we enjoy the beautiful bold yellow of the handsome male evening grosbeak and the demure yellow of the lesser brillant female of this species.
The following three scenes of yellow were seen from a passing train window.  Upon our return home from London , Ontario a week ago I woke in the morning to see many yellow Tamaracks outside our sleeping compartment window.  I said to my husband, "the Tamaracks have turned!  This hardwood appearing needled softwood tree lends its soft beauty to the woodlands at the end of the  brillant coloured leaf cycle and is most prominent in November in our area.  I spent the latter part of our train trip viewing their passing beauty
 In the first  photo below an extra yellow of the reflecting of the interior light within the train compartment is included .
