Evening Grosbeak

May 05, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

If there is one bird I would travel anywhere in Nova Scotia to photograph it would be the Evening Grosbeak. The good looks of this bird, male and female, are stunning.

When I lived in Quebec I had regular visits by flocks of these elegant birds year round. I never appreciated just how fortunate I was at the time.

The Evening Grosbeak was a western bird residing on the Pacific side of the rocky mountains. In the last century they expanded their range which some believe was due to the box elder or Manitoba maple and other ornamental plantings. We had an enormous Manitoba maple tree in our yard in Winnipeg. Unfortunately it is relatively short lived and has monstrous tentacle like roots which can do a lot of damage.
