Evening grosbeak

The evening grosbeaks have arrived, joining the American goldfinches and the black-headed grosbeaks at the feeder. The first time I ever saw this bird was last year and I was stunned at how big and tropical they look -- just beautiful. I took this shot through a dirty window, using a 70-200mm L lens and a 2X teleconverter. It came out surprisingly well. ©Carol Leigh
