and because I always love it when these guys perch at a good angle with the sky to get good polarization...

He is grey - sunset light gave him the orange tinting.... I figure he might be an young adult, with some bit of brown still on him.  But.... he was definitely grey... I was in awe. They are amazing birds.

A few local shots from the first few days of 2017:

Tufted duck from Iona Park:



Snow geese:




Blue Goose:




Black-bellied Plover:



Eurasian Wigeon:




Intergrade Northern Flicker.   Note the black stripe (malar) and red crown on the head typical of the yellow shafted flicker, generally birds from farther east, together with the red shafted colour under the tail.
