Pine Grosbeaks don’t mind winter if there’s a good food supply

If food isn’t plentiful, these members of the finch will held south to find some fruit crops

The Pine Grosbeak is a large member of the true finch family. It’s found in coniferous forests across Alaska, the western mountains of the United States, Canada and Siberia. If the fruit crop is abundant, it will winter in the north, but it will fly south in search of fruit if it’s scarce in northern climes.
