I spent 20 minutes looking after a hard day fishing and couldn't figure out what it is and well I know some of you guys will know right away. Anyway I think it is one for my life list.


Sorry even I know that one, but it is my first eagle picture of the year. :)

This one. It was tough to get a picture in the thick stuff especially when I had to manually focus the camera too.

Wow, incredible eagle photo!
Man that would have been great to see in person. Our nations symbol displaying such a majestic pose for you. It would be an honor for me to see that.

It's a song sparrow. Usually the easiest way to ID them is the breast streaks go into a large central spot or "stickpin". I can't see it in this picture but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.

I only had to go to two bird books to confirm your right M1. Thanks. I have 10 different pictures of a song sparrow and one of them was a match. You know your birds.
