Pine Grosbeak

By gigi50
These beautiful birds visit our neighborhood only one day a year
as they migrate South, I was lucky to get a few captures this time!
Northern Alberta Canada
They were far and quickly grabbed my 400mm ~ Handheld
they fly off quickly, no time to set up tripod !

One of the larger members of its family, the Pine Grosbeak is a bird of the boreal forests,
found across northern Eurasia and North America, and south into the mountains of western Canada
and the United States. A large, unwary finch, it makes periodic winter irruptions into southern Canada 
and northern United States. It is the largest and rarest of the "winter finches."

Yes maybe a card format with a green border
would be nice!

Yes! that would be perfect! Maybe you could make a holiday card for the deviantArt holiday card project with it. whoever received it would absolutely love it. I have a strong urge to do a pyrograph of it myself.

Stunning capture. A little green with envy on this one. Thank-you. P.S. must be nice to have a 400mm just lying around.
