Haemorhous mexicanus

Description:

This individual was one of the pinkest I had seen! Perhaps it looked that way against the drab desolation of winter.

Thank you very much Susan and Kranti. :) I think the shrub may be an ornamental Burning bBush, but I'm not sure. This is a close up of it in the winter:

nice spotting !

That's a great photo. I love how its colors play off of the colors of she shrub. Do you have any idea what the shrub is?
