It's a mad world....

Is it just me, or does this Evening Grosbeak look mad at me? Which reminds me, last week at school I had two Canadian geese chase me across campus hissing at me. Seriously - isn't bird lover written all over my face???

(P.S. Chris from Iceland - please leave your blog address in the comments. I lost your site - thank you!!!)

Just a grosbeak look I would guess, gorgeous pic, I would love to see one. I have Rose-breasted around me, and always enjoy seeing them.

Terrific shot! He's beautiful.

Daisy said...

Hahaha! He looks quite upset with you, Shelley! Maybe he doesn't like having his picture taken. :-D Great shot!

Elaine said...

Oh, yes, he definitely looks mad--but I think that's the Grosbeak equivalent of a smile. Love the shot! And you've got to watch out for those Canadian Geese--they can be vicious! I'm guessing you didn't pause to take their photo!

Clearly cases of mistaken identity. They don't know the real Shelly. :)

It looked mad at you yes... What did you do? Maybe he did not want you to take a picture of him!!! It was maybe a spy grosbeak ;-) Gorgeous shot Shelley!

Shelley, I am new to your blog and a fellow birder / photographer in Canton, Michigan. I am amazed with the variety of birds you've captured. May I ask if you are located near my area (western Wayne County)? I am curious as to whether I stand a ghost of a chance of photographing as many beautiful birds as you have. Love what I've seen so far and look forward to more!

More wonderful shots since my last visit!

He reminds me very much of a Cardinal's gaze. Mostly serious and direct but not mad.
