LE GROS-BEC ERRANT

Le gros bec errant arbord un bec conique proéminent et épais, vraiment très gros pour un oiseau de cette taille.

Voit son bec prendre la couleur des bourgeons au printemps.

Peut engloutir des quantités de sel brut ou de gravier fin et de terre impréniés de sel.

Entretient une étroite relation prédateur-proie avec ce fléau des forêts de résineux qu'est la tordeuse des bourgeons de l'épinette.

le vol du Gros-bec errant est ondulant. Malgré la rapidité des battements d'ailes, les taches blanches scapulaires demeurent bien visibles. L'oiseau lance souvent des appels en vol.

Hi Josep,

Your photo is impessive. First of all the berd itself is very beautiful. This beauty is underlined by the image quality you have obtained. The bird is sharp clear so that even the smallest details can be seen. As example I would mantion birds eye where even the pupil is visible not to mention the light sparkel. Blurry backround intensifys the feeling of sharpnes. Light is very well used so thet fine color tones are present on bird's plumage and on the wooden branch benees.

This is an image I would like to do it myself therefore I will put it to favorites as an example to follow.

Congratulations,
Cristian
