The Avicultural Magazine, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from The Avicultural Magazine, Vol. 3: Being the Journal of the Avicultural Society for the Study of Foreign and British Birds Immature males, and males which have been kept in cages, resemble the females, but the golden of the head and rump is less orange in immature birds. Scientific ornithologists have introduced this species into the British list on the ground that five examples have been obtained, within a period extending over something like twenty-three years, at sea-ports or within easy reach of the sea. When it is remembered that the Pine Grosbeak is a common cage-bird in Canada- and sufficiently pleasing, when in full colour, to be attractive to sailors- although less likely to satisfy them when (owing to close confinement) the glory has departed from the plumage- the only wonder is that at least fifty have not fallen to that impulse said to be natural to true-born Britons in fine weather - "Lovely day! Let's go and kill something." The nest of the Pine Grosbeak is usually placed on a thick branch of spruce-fir, or birch, close to the main stem and at a distance of from ten to twelve feet from the ground- it is somewhat like a large edition of that of the Bullfinch, the outer framework consisting of slender twigs of fir and the inside of fine grass-bents, roots, and hair-lichen. The eggs number from three to four, of a pale turquoise blue colour, with deep purplish-brown or blackish spots, and greyer brown shell-spots- they vary much in the same manner as eggs of the Bullfinch. During the winter months this species is gregarious in its habits, and is so tame that it is easily caught or shot, but in the summer the flocks break up for breeding purposes and the birds are then somewhat more shy, though never so much so as our Bullfinch.
