Pictures of the day

Yesterday was birdathon day. As in previous years, our group being comprised of strictly "intermediate at best" birders doesn't attempt to match the "serious" groups who spend all day (by which I mean from well before dawn until past dark) driving all over the county seeing 150+ species; we confine ourselves to walking just one specific area, and ended the day with a non-record (for us) but perfectly satisfactory 51 species.

Here are two of the highlights, not in terms of rarity, but in beauty (click to enlarge):

Bullock's (a.k.a. Northern) Oriole

Cedar Waxwing
