Black-headed Grosbeak foraging in Montana

I was thrilled to spot this male Black-headed Grosbeak foraging in this flowering shrub while I was in Montana last week. I haven’t had many opportunities to photograph this species so when it popped into view I was elated. Normally I would prefer a less busy foreground and background but this is the perch the bird picked and I think the flowers add interest. Besides, I enjoy photographing birds doing what they do where they decided to do it.

More birds from my Montana trip last week to come…
