Nope, guess again. :)
You should have submitted this to the birdQUIZ blog!! My guess (note guess) is one of the crossbills!
Next time I've got a good one, I'll submit it. You guessed wrong, unfortunately. This was harder than I thought. There aren't that many birds with pink on them.
Tough one for sure. My first impression is Pyrrhuloxia. Challenging, nice!- Mike
Sorry Mike, that's not it either. Patrick was closest so far.
Nope, not House Finch. Keep on guessing folks :)
No, but that's a pretty good guess too. Perhaps I'll drop another hint. Patrick was closest so far, and it's a western species, so it may not come to mind easily to our eastern minds.
Is it a Lewis's woodpecker?
Bingo! Lewis's Woodpecker it is.
Good for people to know.
