I have other pics of the Harris's Sparrow, but I liked the way this one turned out.
I posted this pic earlier in the week, but I am so excited to have found this guy I wanted to share again. As DC was driving down a back road, I caught a glimpse of blue in a tree ahead. Of course I yelled for him to stop and he did. I didn't know what I would find since I have never seen a Kingfisher dressed in such a brilliant blue. But, it is a Belted Kingfisher.
I had to go to the store this morning. On the way I passed a pond with ducks, so I slammed on the brakes even though I was on a state highway. I was able to snap a couple of quick shots before a car came up behind me and I had to go. I tried to turn around and go back, but they flew away before I could get stopped. This is a very poor shot, but Green-winged Teal is a first for me. Excited!
