September 30th, 2016 – Avian Friday: Spotted Towhee

It seems I’ve had way less time to get out and capture any new bird photography images. With the onset of the fall season, things get pretty slow around here in the Pacific Northwest for birding also. I guess I’ll hold out hopes for a good winter season. Perhaps a few Snow Geese and some raptors including owls up in Skagit County might be in the cards. Until then I’ll just have to bore you with some of these leftovers from the archives of previous shoots. This one of a Spotted Towhee was captures a couple of seasons back while out looking for local humming birds. Would have loved to have caught him on a natural perch instead of this fence, but the light was pretty nice so I thought I would share this one none the less.

  1. I understand the natural perch thing, but it still is a great photo! Tack sharp!!! I suspect many of my comments on your photos, include “tack sharp!” Still true! Keep posting.
