I captured these photos a few years ago when this beautiful pine grosbeak was visiting a tree in the yard to eat the remaining berries. It was an overcast day but the red berries combined with the red bird made for such wonderful images that I wanted to share them with you. So, while we won’t be traveling anywhere this week, I hope you enjoy these photographs, and, perhaps, take your own ‘flights’ of fancy. (Forgive the pun)

“Be like the bird who, passing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.” – Victor Hugo



“I don’t ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful.” – Pete Hamil

“A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers” – Suzy Kaesem
