It actually wasn’t evening, but yet another outstanding few minutes with an Evening Grosbeak that was in my viewfinder. The males are really gorgeous birds and their vibrant colors make them stand out regardless how busy the background.
The Evening Grosbeak is the opposite of drab. It’s hard to miss one when it’s surrounded by a drab gray woodsy area, like the woods in Sax-Zim Bog known as Loretta’s Feeders. The leaves were gone from the deciduous trees and the pines were a ways away so there was almost no other color to compete with the bright colors on this bird.
