A group of 14 pine grosbeaks (Durbec des sapins); two bright red males, one female with a bright yellow rump, and the other 11 duller yellowish-brown heads and rumps. They are fun birds to look at as they pose in tree while eating berries and are not frileux! Too bad my camera batteries ran out - Nick
