Presqu'ile Provincial Park - I don't take many feeder pictures but I will make an exception from time to time. This was certainly one of those times. The bird didn't land on adjacent trees but came directly to the feeder. What made this even better was that I was sitting on a recliner at one side of the yard talking with my friend who was on his deck while we both waited for action to follow.

Constance Bay - west of Ottawa. I spent the afternoon with this pair which were actively feeding. Chicks still quite young – not visible. This is the only breeding pair I know of in the region. The nest was near the top of a 50 ft snag. Update: I just learned that there are 4 known breeding pairs in Eastern Ontario but that's still a far cry from the number we used to have.

I think this bird is one of my top 5 favourite species, along with the Snowy Owl, Black-capped Chickadee, Cardinal and Snow Bunting. Competition with Starlings for nest holes has greatly reduced their numbers. Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Florida.
