Are you looking at me?
Female rose-breasted grosbeak
What a great pose and background for her to show off her beauty!
Just look at her sweet face! And look at her feathers being ruffled by the wind in the first shot.These are wonderful!
Here's looking at you Shelley!
I love OWLS!! When I lived in my first house in Ohio I had a dogwood tree next to the driveway that died. It was a pretty big tree and I hated to to see it go. I had contacted somebody to come and cut it down. That night I was in the kitchen about 6:30 and I looked out the window and there was a a little owl in that tree. He stayed there for hours! I had to call the guy back and postpone cutting the tree down because that little owl came back every night at the same time for 3 weeks. He even let me get close to him! I sure enjoyed that time. I even cancelled places I needed to go and put off chores so we could visit!! Thanks for a great owl post and I am so glad ot hear about the little mourning dove. WHat is up with that Blue Jay anyway?? I never heard of such a thing. The female grosbeak so completely diffent than her man but a beauty none the less!! Have a great day!!Beth
I think in the second picture she is saying "Nope...doesn't look any better from this angle!" Great shots.
LOL! You gave me a smiling start to my day Shelley!
Great shots! Love the ruffled feathers in the first one and the quizzical expression in the second.
Mysteriously, we missed the females this year. They always arrive about a week after we see the first male. We saw far fewer males this year and no females at all. Hope we catch them on fall migration.Thanks for sharing yours.
Looks like that new lens is paying off! I love that first one especially!
You captions are great.Patsy
Lovely shots! I've had the females at my feeder. The Male was here a couple times and I got some good pics of him, but haven't seen him since.
Hi Shelley,Love that second picture with her head to one side!! Great job!
Gorgeous! It looks like she is trying to figure out what the heck you're doing. Wonderful shots!
I love grosbeaks. We have some here that are "parrot green" and they are huge. Also very funny.Hey, Teddy says woof for stopping by. Sharon
That's a great pose in the second shot Shelley.
Beautiful Shelley, I love both of them, the first one for the little effect of the wind on the feather and the second for the attitude! Well done and beautiful pictures!
Love these photos!! I have never seen a female but I'm sure they are around if I saw the male. Great shots of her Shelly!!
What a portrait artist you have become!! Wonderful shots of that little girlie bird!! :)
Even though her beauty i subdued,she is every bit as pretty as the male. Blessings,Ruth
oh my goodness......she is so sweet. Lovely portraits...you've captured her personality!!!
I see that after she spied you with your camera she smoothed her feathers and posed deliberately for the second shot. I totally get that.
Beautiful.beautiful as always

I love these - and the owl shot from earlier is wonderful!
OMG Shelley. Fantastic shots!! I love the second one where its neck is tilted.
I think the female grosbeak is such a lovely bird - what she doesn't have in color she makes up for in beautiful markings and eyes. You make her look divine!
Lovely close-ups Shelley :-)We had 2 in our yard yesterday, and today I got one bathing.
I love that quizical look she is giving you. I believe it is saying.."I need more food".
Shelly: Really neat photos of the neat bird. I saw one in the woods during a walk with a male.
Beautiful images, Shelly. So expressive.
Oh I love that second picture, Shelley. She looks like she is 'peeking' at you... TOOOOOOO Cute!Hugs,Betsy
I love these photos, especially the first one! So sweet! Great shots Shelley!
ahhh such a cutie.
She looking at you! tee hee..nice photos as always, Shelley
She's posing just for you, Shelley. :)
