Here’s a fine European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) in it’s winter coat of colours. Only problem is that it only has one leg! But that hasn’t seemed to slow it down at all!


Lunchtime

A Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooprii) juvenile, stopped in for lunch today, but all the lunch made a hasty retreat and it went away hungry!


Fish for Lunch Too

Here’s another Eagle shot. This one an immature Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) with a lovely dead Salmon for lunch. This guy will be White by next year. You can just see the white coming in around it’s bill, which will also turn colour as it ages!


Canada’s

Slate-coloured

A Slate-coloured Junco, (Junco hyemalis) stands out from the Oregon Dark-eyed Junco, by it’s colour. But is in fact the same species.


Waiting
