Camera Critters #205

Earlier this week, a friend of mine and I went to an area north of here to check on Bald Eagles.  We were hoping to find a few to photograph. 

However, we had a few problems and didn’t get to the best area to search for the majestic raptors.

But I did see one bird.

The Townsend Solitaire is year-round bird in my area.  Myadestes townsendi loves the top of trees and can normally be found there calling out.

So... we both posted birds this week. It's like we're on the same brain wave or something ;-P

Reminds me of birds I see around here that always choose the treetops to perch & sing. Sorry you didn't get to see any bald eagles. That would have been outstanding.
