I do not think so. According to Sibley we are at the northern edge of it's range. They are quite common here at this time of year.Nikam said:Rory, beautiful capture as always!!!
Are those birds only on the Island? I used to live in Vancouver and, for a few years, out in the Fraser Valley, but I don't think I've ever seen one of those. The red eye is quite startling.
He he. It is such a pain holding the flash well away from the camera...mike mac said:Rory

Hi Bill - welcome back :lol:Retief said:That is what those gazillion MP's will do for you, a 25% crop, wow. Looks great. I saw one of these locally earlier in the year, took me a while with Sibley to ID it. This little fellow certainly struck a nice pose for you as well. About how far away do you reckon you were?
