Colourful Cousins

A bird with red on the top of its head and back and also in front (top) picks out a mountain ash delicacy as it and two others stop to eat out for less than five minutes before they vanish. The pine grosbeaks dwarf others in the finch family. Males are the most colourful while females are mostly brown or grey. Photo bottom meanwhile shows one of the smallest members of the finch family, the tiny common redpoll which appeared five days after the larger bird. The redpoll weighs between 0.42 and 0.56 ounces and typically eats 40 percent of its body weight in seeds daily to keep itself alive. ©Provost News Photos.
