Camera Critters #214

During a recent bike ride in the Dry Canyon area of Redmond, Oregon, I came upon a tree which was singing louder than any tree I had ever heard before.

After stopping and getting the camera ready, I realized the tree was full of Evening Grosbeaks.  There were adult males, females, juvenile males and females.  And they all were calling away.

After snapping a number of photos, I got on my bike and continued my ride.
