Good catch, the lead in branch and background is nice
Amazing. I love the detail on the wing.
BD, this is a great photo. I am wondering though how you know it is 4 years old? You tracking its birthday celebrations?
Going by the Cornell Birding Guide that shows 1st-4th year images. He looked almost identical to the 4th year one.
Thanks, but you do know I was just kidding a bit - maybe one of his ancestors posed for the picture? We are having a mid-winter heat wave (+13°C here today, 55°F) and it has been above 0°C for a few days and will stay there for a few more days. This is unique as normally February is our coldest month with temps around -20 to -25°C. They are blaming it on el Nino. Tends to make one a little crazy and gives rise to my nutty sense of humour, wait, oh yah, my nutty sense of humour is around all year!
Do you have a reference for the guide?
