The Pine Grosbeak

The pine grosbeak is a member of the finch family and is a permanent resident through most of its range.

In the far north they may migrate farther south when food is scarce. They forage on the ground or in the trees eating seeds, fruits, buds and needles from trees. The colour pattern of the males are reddish pink and grey while females and immatures are greyish with tints of reddish orange or yellow on the head and rump. They all have dark grey wings, which have two wing-bars and white wing edging.
