Oregon Dark Eyed Junco (FZ35)
Apr 30, 2012

These birds are pretty common here in So Calif. I found the first one (female) in a tree waiting to get to her nest to feed her babies. She took a long time waiting to make sure there were no other birds around to follow her. The male was also close by watching out. Then she flew to her nest which is located deep inside a very low bush (they nest on the ground). I could hear the babies but I couldn't find the nest. This shot was just straight FZ35.

I also found one bathing in a creek nearby. These were taken with FZ35 + LT55. I was actually waiting for a different bird when this guy came by. I didn't do too well with my intended target of the Western Tanager, which I'll post later.
