Large (Gros) beaks are the identifying characteristic of the group of birds called Grosbeaks
. They fall into two different families, but to make them easy to find, I placed both the Cardinal (Cardinalidae) and Finch (Fringillidae) families together.
The Evening Grosbeak
is part of the Finch family, and the Blue Grosbeak
, Rose-breasted Grosbeak
, and Black-hooded Grosbeak
are in the Cardinal Family.
The collective noun for a group of Grosbeaks is a "Gross" and that my friend is a gross collective noun! When I am in charge of such things as collective nouns, it will be changed to a "Bill"!
Check out Wildlife Workshops
and perhaps you will find a photography workshop that suits your fancy. I have several that are bird related, but somehow I always manage to get a few bird images regardless of the primary targets!
