A female Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata) afloat in a pond covered in reflections from the surrounding trees and undergrowth!

I love reflections!

A Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) away from the water. It’s unusual to see them on dry land, for me anyway! Perhaps it was hunting mice!


Confused

An Immature male Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) flew in a couple of days ago. He is still looking quite confused as to what he’s supposed to do. Usually when he flies in, the little bird fly away and leave him to guess at his next move. He’ll soon catch on!
