After shunning us for our October monthly challenge list, this guy (if the same bird) showed up in its regular spot today at Island 22.
I was pleased when my binoculars saw something similar to this! ;D ;D
Got some closer shots. It seems to be moving into nonbreeding colours as there is some more dark feathering on the face.
A Sharp-shinned Hawk flew over as well as a flock of Green-winged Teal. A good 300+ Cackling Geese were among about 200 Canada Geese. Amazing how the two keep separate from each other. A Red-necked Grebe was also spotted.
