These are very rare around here so I'm told. First time I've ever seen one,other than the photos posted here, or in a bird book. This guys head wasn't all that yellow compared to the photos I've seen....maybe my whitel balance was out...cheers...Don

Thanks for looking Roger. I liked the poses better than the IQ. I should have metered for the head on these instead of matrix. I think I might have gotten a better result. I was too excited about seeing this bird for the first time, and wasn't really thinking alot about what I was doing..........cheers..........Don

Sometimes no I take that back ALL the time that shot is waiting on me I get excited and sometimes I make myself look away and try to start all over. In hunting they call it Buck Fever so I guess I will call this camera feaver.

don't feel bad, Don, i've only seen one of those once, and he was sitting in amongst some leafy branches, so i couldn't get a decent shot. i guess they're more common on the east side of the mountains, but i'd love to get a good look at one over here!

Nice shots of a bird we rarely see around here, only a couple in early spring just passing through.
