Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.
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!

My photography blog has pictures and more stories about my images, check it out: Jeff Wendorff Photography.
