A few recent photos taken at various locations.

First up, a Pigeon Guillemot at Point Roberts. There is a small flock living there and they sometimes come close to shore.

Image

Also from Point Roberts, a Horned Lark displaying its horns.

Image

And, still from Pt. Roberts, a Common Tern having words with a Bonaparte's Gull. "Common" Terns are uncommon in these parts.

Image

Still another from Pt. Roberts, a Belted Kingfisher.

Image

From Boundary Bay, an American Kestrel male. The Owlies below either didn't see him, or else ignored a non-Owl.

Image

From Elgin Heritage Park a visiting American Avocet juvenile.

Image

Back to Point Roberts where I encountered a pair of Western Meadowlarks foraging on the beach. Some of these days were very dull and I pushed the ISO up to 4000.

Image

At Boundary Bay I went to a location rich in American Pipits. Saw around 20 of them on a sunny day.

Image

A surprise at the White Rock Pier - a pair of Black Scoters swimming close to the shoreline.

Image

At Blackie Spit on a very cold, but sunny morning I came across a busy Ruby-crowned Kinglet while the sun was at my back.

Image

And on a cold, dark day I went seeking the Richmond Blue Jay. Another high ISO photo.

Image

On a chilly day at Boundary Bay, I finally came across a wintering Yellow-rumped Warbler. Not too many there this year.

Image

I'll throw in one bonus photo of a Barn Owl. I had never seen one flying before, only sitting in a tree. I watched one snag a rodent and carry it off to a nearby tree. Very cold morning with low light and again, high ISO.
