A Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) in the bushes taking a break from trying to feed in the pouring rain. There are six subspecies of Junco, this one in an Oregon.

A proud Mew Gull (larus canus) standing on the sand at White Rock while the tide is out. I believe this to be an adult Nonbreeding bird.
