Très bel oiseau à prédominance rouge e t à queue noire, le durbec des sapins est très peu farouche, ce qui nous permet de nous en approcher aisément. On le verra parfois plus au sud qu’à l’habitude, selon les saisons, en raison d’un trop grand nombre d’individus, ce qui laisse croire à une rareté de la nourriture. Parfois très abondant, il arrive qu’il s’agglutine aux jaseurs boréaux. Pour se nourrir, ilpréférera les pommettes les noix et les bourgeons. à tout autre nourriture. Aux mangeoires cependant, c’est le tournesol noir qu’il préfère. Comme habitat, ce sont les forêts de conifères qu’il affectionne particulièrement, il arrive cependant de le voir dans des forêts mixtes. En guise d’affection et pour impressionner la femelle durant la parade nuptiale, le mâle battra vigoureusement des ailes tout en s’élevant jusqu’à 30m du sol. En période de nidification, il est soi solitaire ou en couple. On peut l’apercevoir haut percher qui chante au gré du vent. Il arrive parfois que les nids des durbec des sapins soient parasités par le vacher à tête brune, ce qui laisse présager une diminution de l’espèce. On remarquera une diminution récente dans l’ est

Hi Joseph, this is a very clear shot of this Pine Grosbeak. The colour is excellent. I like the pose he has given you with his back to you, but head turned to look at the camera. You see a lot of very good detail this way. Lighting is good, and you have excellent focus on that bird, especially in the capture of that eye.

Thanks, John

Hi Joseph,
Wonderful shot of this Pine Grosbeak. Framing is perfect with the branch going across the bottom from corner to corner, excellent detail, and well composed, nice work :) Cheers Rick ....

Splendido ritratto, ottimi POV e DOF, bellissima composizione con il rametto semicurvo e la posa semigirata, eccellenti dettagli e molto belli i colori, ottima esposizione con uso misto della luce, anche se il flash mi sembra abbia provocato una piccola ombra, che comunque non disturba.
Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio
