Pine Grosbeak

A plump bird with a strong, robust beak, the Pine Grosbeak lives all year round in Québec and in the northern mountains of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It nests in conifer forests, clearings and woods, where it can feed on seeds, buds, insects and fruits. Not especially fearful, it will also visit feeding dishes. The length of the Pine Grosbeak is 23 to 25 cm.

Hello Jeanpaul,
Splendid light in this photo. Very beautiful colours and sharpness. Lovely pose of this Pine Grosbeak. Beautiful surroundings. Very nice blue BG.

Very natural surroundings for this Pine Grosbeak, JP. I like the branches of the pine tree making a lovely backdrop for the subject. Even though the subject is small within the frame, it makes a lovely composition.
Hope all is well with you.

bonjour Jean Paul

Hi Jeanpaul. I like the way you have used the sun light which has given a bright warm light to the colourful bird. Taken with good detail against the back drop of the fir tree. well taken TFS.

Hello JeanPaul,

an very good capture from this bird with good pov and dof.
Fine colours.


Hello Jeanpaul
molto interessante il modo con cui hai ritratto questo piccolo uccello, incorniciandolo in un chiaro-scuro davvero piacevole a vedersi dando buona profondità alla foto. Ottima sia la nitidezza che la messa a fuoco.

Hallo Jeanpaul
The combination of colours and detail in this image is great and is displayed well in contrast with the green tree. Although the bird is a bit far (for my bad eyes) the detail of this photo is of high quality, really outstanding and are jam packed with awesome little things to appreciate, one being the lovely sunlight that lightens up the whole image. Very pleasing to the eye and speaks to the heart. Kind regards
