The Return of the Grosbeaks!

The Return of the Grosbeaks.
 
I always feel spring has sprung when I hear the sound resembling chalk chirping on a chalkboard. I know it is the call of the Rose-breasted Grosbeak. They arrive in a nice size group, stay a few weeks, eat lots of seed, then move on to their breeding grounds. I am happy put the seed out for them just to see the beautiful red heart on the chest and hear that chirp. Last year they stayed almost 4 weeks, I hope this year will be a repeat. The first image is one of a young male going into his breeding plumage, the second image is of a female.
 
Both images were made using the Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD G2 lens on a Canon 7Dii, Manual Exposure mode, f8, ISO 1000, shutter speed of 1/200th of a second, Sirui P424S monopod and L10 head, processed in Lightroom CC. #WithMyTamron, #TamronImageMaster, #SiruiProfessional, #SiruiUSA
