2015-10-25: What I’ve seen this week

This week has seen a fair bit of rain and fog in my area, so I didn’t take my camera out with me as much as I would like.  When I did, much of what I tried to shoot suffered from poor light and a lot of noise.  So, just a few pictures this week to share, all taken today.

I was happy to see the northern shrike again, and this time, have my camera at the ready.  This one is a juvenile based on the plumage.

Another view of the northern shrike.  If it hadn't been for a sizeable flock of other birds that caught my attention (finches or sparrows, or perhaps the crossbills) I wouldn't have even noticed this lovely bird.

The three birds posed in the treetops are part of a much larger group that were pecking at the pinecones.  With the fog, I wasn't able to make a species ID.
