Clearing up my 2012 shots. In this series, the Pine Grosbeaks were feeding off the dirt/sand/gravel (may have some salt) from the road. There were no seeds on the ground. I concentrated mostly on the males with their lovely red colour, and even attempted a few flight shots. The flight shots all failed miserably as the lighting was pretty crappy. The featured shot was captured at ground level, just like what I typically do with shorebirds. Enjoy!
