Great shots, Ian, and very nice choreography on the Pelicans! lol. I had a pleasant evening walk yesterday and saw about 5 of these lovely fellows: White-breasted Nuthatch.

Everyone has added such great shots - well done!
I finally dragged myself out and got a few more to add to the list -

The following were taken a while ago, but still within 2020.

I haven't been able to get a good shot of a Male Hoodie this year. When I do I'll add it unless someone else can get one.
(Don't you love her hairdo?)

Still need the female.

Keep 'em coming!

Wow, nice work everyone!

I was off work this morning and got a few more (all in Delta).

Really early on, this Hermit Thrush was hopping around my yard:

And I saw some Northern Shovelers:

And Mom & Baby Great Horned Owl:

I was down in Ian's neck-of-the-woods a couple of days ago and captured these nice Western Bluebirds on White Lake Road near White Lake.

Female

Male

On the same road I saw this Calliope Hummingbird. I know I already have a shot out there, but this one is better!

Very nice, Zach! I had a Tree Sparrow but didn't like the image ... glad you have such a nice shot.
Judy -- for you ... a male Hooded Merganser. Taken at Munson Pond in Kelowna.
Image

And in your honor ... the male and female ... except she was being shy ...

Also ... I couldn't pass up the chance to post my American and Eurasian Wigeons together photo. lol.

Oh Wow! The latest additions are all so spectacular - I can't pick a favourite. There are a couple that I still need to get on my list.

Here's a Downy Woodpecker from the backyard the other day.

I decided to go for the trifecta on the Common Goldeneye (since I had the pics anyway) - Male, Female and Immature Male

Happy Birding Everyone!

Ooooh, I just saw your Hoodies James! Love them and "thanks" for the honor of both Male and Female in the same shot.
I have yet to get a good shot (like yours) of the American and Eurasian Wigeons together. It's not like I haven't seen them at Blackie Spit, but they are never close enough to get a good shot.
Cheers!

Congratulations on the Vesper Sparrow Zach! And yes, you just have to love the Brown-headed Cowbirds - right up there with the Starlings :mrgreen: .
I got a real treat this afternoon while sitting on the patio. One of the most beautiful birds (IMHO) around here - a Male Western Tanager in full breeding plumage!

I really think this Covid19 is helping us birders - less people around means more birds are showing up. Maybe I'm grasping at straws, but you have to find something positive about it!
