Spectacular!! I would love to see these birds in person. Especially in the snow.

Both equally beautiful! Will you tell the Evening Grosbeak I've been waiting for his return too to Michigan? Thanks. :)

Oh, Nick, they're gorgeous! I love how up close and personal your photographs are. I haven't seen either of them. What beauties! Thank you.

Excellent shots Nick! I love the snow falling perfectly for that second photo.

Thanks guys. I was lucky to see a couple of those Evening Grosbeaks flying overhead here in town recently, but they never landed. For me to see them anytime, usually means a 2hr journey.
