March Valley Grosbeaks

A flock of Pine Grosbeaks have been regulars at the March Valley Rd. bird feeders all winter, delighting nature-watchers. I often drive down there to look at them since MVR is right next to where I live. Whereas the flock I found in front of my husband's work in November was all drab, olive/gray females and juveniles, this flock has a large percentage of beautiful rose-red mature males.

These are best appreciated at high res, so click on the wallpaper links if you want to enjoy all the details.

Take a closer look and you can see a Common Redpoll giving one of the grosbeaks a piece of his mind:
