Evening Grosbeak chowing down on juniper berries

I first heard these Evening Grosbeak giving soft inter-flock contact calls near where I had stopped my car in Red Canyon Park yesterday. There were about a dozen of them feeding in this and nearby juniper shrubs.
Interestingly all that I saw were females or immatures as shown in these photos.
And each one I saw eating had pieces of juniper berries all over their bills, they are pretty sloppy eaters. SeEtta
