Long Billed Dowicher On Log
I was quite surprised to the see these shore birds dwarfed by the peacefull mallards. Generally Mallards are enough of a pain that other birds don't hang out.
Species: Limnodromus scolopaceus (Long-billed Dowitcher)

Two Pintails In Disagreement
In the pond close to our house, it's pretty much just Mallards and Canada Geese. Reifel has a lot more variety. These two birds were in a shoving match.
Species: Anas acuta (Northern Pintail)

Chickadee On Fence Post
These birds are quite smart (compared to say ducks) - I wonder if that explains why they are so plentiful.
Species: Poecile atricapillus (Black-capped Chickadee)

Female American Wigeon
I did some research into Eurasian vs American Female wigeon - the head colours on the American are more distinct compared to the Eurasian.
Species: Anas americana (American Wigeon)

This is a three image composite (in photoshop). I don't own a long lens so this is the best I can do.

Marsh Wren Through The Grass
I like the foreground elements here - they give you a sense of a "glimpse through the grass"
Species: Cistothorus palustris (Marsh Wren)

Two Eagles On A Lookout Tree
I saw one of these birds come in for a landing but I didn't have my camera ready. I watched for a while to see if one would fly off, but it didn't. An hour later when I walked by again, they were both still sitting in the tree.
Species: Haliaeetus leucocephalus (Bald Eagle)

Barn Swallow Inspecting Nest
This shot was a complete fluke. Helen and I were in blind and saw the nest inside. I set up to take a shot of the nest (on a tripod with a timer no less) and just as the shot took we saw the bird fly in. We were both shocked.
Species: Hirundo rustica (Barn Swallow)
