Harrier On Fence Post
This bird (a Juvenile Harrier) wound up very close to the foot path - people were walking by with the dogs and noisy children so it didn't take long before the bird moved on.
Species: Circus cyaneus (Northern Harrier)

Short Eared Owl On Power Cable
These owls have really distinct yellow eyes - and they hunt in the day.

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)

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)

Ring Necked Duck
The classic, I thought it was one species, get home and check the guide books and find out I was totally wrong. Live and learn.

Also, not great composition - try getting lower to the water and try to get the eye focused.

Species: Aythya collaris (Ring-necked Duck)

Great Blue Heron Face
I love the little feathers on the head.

You can see the strong black and white stripe on the head and orange in the top of the bill.

Species: Ardea herodias (Great Blue Heron)

Great Blue Heron On Rail
I love how bunched up this bird looks - I suspect he is just trying to keep warm.

Fox Sparrow
I figured this was a female Towhee, (because it was hanging out with the Towhee's) but, like usual, I was wrong.
Species: Passerella iliaca (Fox Sparrow)

Exit Stage Right
I bet when I was pressing the shutter, this bird was still standing. (A comment pointed out that this is stage right, viewer left. My bad).
Species: Poecile atricapillus (Black-capped Chickadee)

Black Capped Chickadee
These little guys move very quickly. I assume they believed I was giving out seed. Might have something to do with standing near the (empty) bird feeder.

Bit of a dirty head from eating around the base of the grass.

These birds appeared to be after insects.
