Pine Grosbeak

Pinicola enucleator

Description:

Adult birds are about 23 cm in length. Males are primarily a rosy-red while females tend towards more yellow markings. Both have dark wings and are light below. The bill is heavy and designed to crack seeds.

Habitat:

Boreal forests.

Notes:

Sax-Zim Bog is becoming a better known location for winter birding (and photography). It attracts significant numbers of northern birds that come south and find shelter here. As a result, one can find birds here that can be difficult to otherwise find unless one travels much further north. Best of all, the winter birds here are rather predictable in their behavior and fairly easy to find due to feeders being set up in various places.
