This guy was up in the tree just outside my house this afternoon. I think my dog, Daisy is too fat for him, hopefully. There seems to be something going on that they are interested in because there was about 5 of them flying around today.

An excellent capture of this magnificent bird, Sandy, I wonder if you found out what was alerting a number of them to your area? Carol

What a superb shot, you are very lucky to have these magnificent birds so close. I was really surprised when we were in BC last year at how many of them there are, we had only just arrived in Tofino when two flew overhead.

A fine shot indeed.

I would not care for them in my garden as we encourage many small birds to the feeding station.

Your national emblem, and an incredible looking bird. You'd need a big bird table for that.

Certainly looks to be on the lookout from this high location Sandy.
Interesting that you had 5 of them around there must be a good supply of food then.
Good details and colours in the feathers
