Sorry Heather somehow my reply ended up under Debra's post but I will reiterate that this pic was an excellent choice by you for your Christmas Card. I also wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Great timing and precision focus really showcases the beautiful plumage of the Grosbeak. The leaves add some nice contrast to the winter background.

Thank you so much Debra, it was nice to get a bit of a wing shot with some background colour to liven things up a little too. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Description
One of those birds I associate with the Winter Solstice and Christmas. I caught this one about to take flight on a windy afternoon from a weeping birch tree. It's one of the few trees that keep their leaves throughout the winter.
