Pine Grosbeaks On Platform In Ontario – Nov. 8, 2016

The sexually dimorphic Pine Grosbeaks are year round residents of the boreal forests of North America and Eurasia. Adult males display a rosy to brick red on their head, breast, rump and body. Females and immatures are more gray overall, with an olive yellow head and rump. These large, conical billed finches subsist almost exclusively on the buds, seeds, and fruits of boreal trees and bushes.

Thanks to Perky-Pet for helping to make the Ontario FeederWatch Cam possible!

The FeederWatch cam is located in a residential neighborhood in Manitouwadge, Ontario. This northern site is an excellent location to see winter finches like redpolls and grosbeaks as well as two species of Jays and even Ruffed Grouse! The feeders sit in the middle of a large backyard with a large birch tree that the birds love, as well as a mixed stand of conifers and several fruit and berry producing shrubs. There’s a small swamp just beyond the backyard as well as larger stands of woods and a small lake.The feeder system is the product of the camera hosts’ ingenuity, making use of plastic piping to support the feeders high enough above ground to foil the occasional squirrel, and a rotating set of feeders that provide black oil sunflower seeds, nyjer seed, whole and shelled peanuts, and peanut butter suet in a homemade hanging log to the dozens of species that visit.

Here a flock of Evening Grosbeaks treat the platform on the Ontario FeederWatch Cam like a runway at a busy airport. Can you guess who’s the last one to leave? Stay until the end to find out!
