Ottawa - Tremendous luck with this bird. I was in my car watching juncos and Tree Sparrows when it dropped to the ground right in front of me, about 5 metres away. Almost too close. This is just about full frame, with a slight crop on the left.
St. Andrews West - I returned to the location where I shot the Red-bellied Woodpecker last month to see if I could get pictures in sunlight. It took some time for both the bird to appear as well as the sun but eventually it worked out.
