A Bird In The Hand

Jestyn with Pine Grosbeak on Snowshoe Safari

It’s spring and the birds know it!  They’re flitting and chirping all around us on the Snowshoe Safaris lately.  It’s been quite a show.

Last Friday, we got so close to a Pine Grosbeak, we could pick it up.  It was laying on the snow dead, recently blown out of a tree in a sudden spring gust.  It was perfectly preserved, so we had a good look and returned him to his resting spot.

We often find squirrel and bird nests blown out of the trees in spring, but this was the first bird I’ve seen knocked out.
