[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
De la taille d'un merle,de 23 à 25 cm son plumage est d'un beau rouge framboise. Ses ailes sont noires et pourvues de barres alaires. Son ventre et ses flancs sont gris. Sa longue queue est foncée. Son bec épais est noir.
La femelle est grise avec la tête et le croupion teintés de jaune-olive.
Il habite généralement les forêts de conifères en période de nidification. En hiver, il nous visite sporadiquement et occupe alors les forêts mixtes, les arbres fruitiers dans les villes ou à la campagne. En été on le voit plus au nord mais il envahit le sud du Quebec lorsque l'hiver est plus rigoureux et que la nourriture se fait rare. Ce belle oiseau rondelet et peu farouche se laisse facilement approché au grand plaisir des observateurs.

Jolie photo encore une fois!

Un de ces jours quand j'aurai une réflex digital, je vais aller faire un pti tour au Lac pour prendre des leçon avec toi mon ami. Je suis certain que tu sauras m'en apprendre grandement.
Superbe image, nette, bien exposé, bonne composition. Mais tout cela ce n'est que des détails. L'important c'est de les repérer, le comprendre et les étudier. C'est mon point faible avec les oiseaux.
Tres belle image Joseph.

Amicalement

Just perfect. Excellent crisp focus on the grosbeak; the bird's colours are brilliant, its eye is bright and in focus; and the background provides a perfect and well-blurred contrast to the bird and the branch.
