Hello Janice,
We both chose birds fairly similar in appearance, but yours is much more brightly colored. I have never seen a Pine Grosbeak, but must admit it is a gorgeous specimen judging from your photo. I love it's vivid colors and unique markings. Nicely captured feeding on the red berries. Awesome composition and great eye contact.

Very beautiful capture of this Finch, Janice.
The color of berries matches with its own color to make a fabulous composition.
Belated Happy New Year!

Hello Janice,
Nice photo of a Pine Grosbeak in beautiful bright colors and a fine composition. The background is a bit noisy, a pity. Good sharpness.

Outstanding picture Janice,in all perspectives.

Thanks for sharing.
