BirdSpotter Photo Contest: Week 2 Winner
Congratulations to Catherine M. Diehl-Robbins, our winner for the second week of the BirdSpotter Photo Contest! This week’s theme was “shades of red” and Catherine delivered with her beautiful photo of a male Pine Grosbeak enjoying some Mountain Ash berries.
Catherine says, “Pine Grosbeaks are a popular winter bird in south-central Alaska. They frequent the Mountain Ash trees competing with the Bohemian Waxwings for the berries in early winter. The Mountain Ash tree grows very well in the Alaska and every neighborhood has dozens of them, making Grosbeaks a regular yard bird in the winter. Retirement has given me the time and opportunity to enjoy all of the wonderful birds we have in Alaska, the Pine Grosbeak being one of my favorites!”
The third week of our BirdSpotter Photo Contest, sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill, starts tomorrow! This week’s theme is “birds in flight”! Only one photo can be submitted per person and the contest runs through Sunday, December 2nd.
