Evening Grosbeak

These photos were taken on 25th & 26th October 2007 in our back yard. Evening Grosbeaks are spread over most of the North American continent, but here in Port Elgin, Ontario, we don't see them too often and when we do, it's either spring or fall. It's been 5 or 6 years since I've seen any, but when they do come, it's usually in a large flock of 100 to 200 birds and only stay for a few days. This year, when they first came, there was only about 20 or 30 but they stayed for about a week, and as the week went on the flock got larger until there was probably 200 and then all at once, they were gone.
