Thanks for the link! They are really speckled, but other than coloring, quite similar to the Clark's.

Yes, bears can be a problem until they den up for the winter. I have a hanging feeder and another which is just an open tray. The winter birds like both (and I put some seeds on the ground under the woodpile shelter for the ground feeders.

Both species are incredible birds!

I don't remember seeing them in Arizona, but there should be some around above the rim. Grizzlies are omnivores but I'm sure they get as many pine seeds as they can.

It's still pretty mild for this time of year. The snow (Most of it) in the valley has melted, but the last two days my son and I hunted a little higher up in the snow.

Beautiful! Thanks for trying to get us in the holiday spirit, hard to do down here, you know...but that's okay, I'll look at your photos instead.

Cool! I keep hoping to see one of these when we go to the higher elevations but, so far, no luck. A grizzly must have to eat a ton of those seeds to fill up!

Yup, they do — and a brain that grows over the summer to remember where they stored all the seeds. Incredible.

I'll have to get a bird feeder as well. Hopefully the bears are hibernating so they won't get into it.

Hope you can see this picture of the Nutcracker that we have here in Sweden. The picture is from the site "Artportalen" (Species observation portal): https://www.artportalen.se/Image/1972455 Ellington
