Each of these are winter birds that visit our feeders or berry bushes on a daily basis.. a red male pine grosbeak, olive colored female pine grosbeak and a bohemian waxwing. They are the most beautiful of birds and really brighten up the winter landscape..

Each of these images were taken from the same vantage point, on a south-facing deck, but the light conditions were obviously quite different..
