Not very often one of these gets down this far

Nice shot. It's a strange year for bird movement; finches are not moving at all, and several rarities have shown up. We have 2 Varied Thrushes in Hali County right now, and a Rose Breasted Grosbeak: first record in over 50 years of Xmas bird counts.

Nice pics. I am wondering how far you were from the birds? What lenses are you using?

 I'm using a 300mm it landed within 25' of some people he/she don't care about the people it just does what it wants too

They are super photogenic: love to perch on the tops of spruces, and very tolerant of people. Hopefully the doughheads don't start baiting it to get better shots.

I was there today. It was pretty busy but everyone stayed to the trails. The owl doesn't seem at all afraid of people and will land on trees very close to the crowds.
