Doesn't look too pleased at having his picture taken Heman Wink Definitely not a dove so I'll go along with it being a wagtail!

Fits the bill Herman, shadow perfect. In answer to your query, it was a fascinating and enlightening experience. 15 hrs in a bear hide on my own concentrates the mind and camera. The Bears behaved naturally and hopefully within range of my lens.
They did try to access my hide ( and it wasn't bear proof !!! )
