Is winter in Ontario...

The evening grosbeak (Hesperiphona vespertina) is a passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae found in North America.

The breeding habitat is coniferous and mixed forest across Canada and the western mountainous areas of the United States and Mexico.
These birds forage in trees and bushes, sometimes on the ground. They mainly eat seeds, berries, and insects. Outside of the nesting season they often feed in flocks. Sometimes, they will swallow fine gravel.

Hi Mario,
Lovely winter image. Gorgeous colors and details.
Perfect composition.
Regards Jiri.

As always, Mario, your work is impeccable. This work takes the look of an American watercolor with a focus on large photographic detail to the head of this beautiful bird, spinning all alrrededor composition of its look, with a soft blur concentrating us in his small, lively eyes and scrutineers .
Great job!!!
