Pine and Evening Grosbeaks

Crooked River - Tuesday, March 19, 2004 by: Helen Carson

Here's a close -up shot of a Pine Grasbeak.(above)

I know you already have a
bunch of them but could not resist sending this one.

We have been enjoying the birds all winter and though my husband and I have both been taking pictures, this one is mine.

These are Evening Grosbeaks.(right and below) The shot of the single female shows she is blind in one eye.

We had noticed her at the feeders several time. Then one day she showed up looking ill. Sadly we never saw her again.

Below is a pair of Evening Grosbeaks.
