This was a new bird in my birding adventures. My husband and I were hiking in the Weaselhead Nature area, on the west side of Calgary. We came around a corner on the wooded trail and he spotted a bright red bird up in the trees. We patiently watched and waited… in a matter of minutes, the fence posts were filled with red, yellow and orange varieties! A flurry of activity. When we got home, as usual, we did a little research and discovered these are Pine Grosbeaks. The red ones are the males, the yellow ones are the female and the young can be anything in between.
