A little bird that I've had a great deal of difficulty photographing.  Yellow Rumped Warbler.  They don't sit still for very long, that's for sure.

Steven about the yellow rumpled warbler, does it skitter in a tree and then make a short loop out into a clear area as if catching bugs.  I've been seeing a bird like this in portland or, and having equal difficulty catching it.    Later I'll see if I have any portable images, I was having trouble identifying it.

Wild turkey.... in ten years they have gone from a rare sighting to a common visitor. This fellow had about a dozen hens keeping him company.

Buff-banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Buff-banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis) is a distinctively coloured, highly dispersive, medium-sized rail of the family Rallidae. This species comprises several subspecies found throughout much of Australasia and the south-west Pacific region, including the Philippines (where it is known as Tikling), New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand (where it is known as the Banded Rail or Moho-pereru in Māori),[2] and numerous smaller islands, covering a range of latitudes from the tropics to the Subantarctic.

It is a largely terrestrial bird the size of a small domestic chicken, with mainly brown upperparts, finely banded black and white underparts, a white eyebrow, chestnut band running from the bill round the nape, with a buff band on the breast. It utilises a range of moist or wetland habitats with low, dense vegetation for cover. It is usually quite shy but may become very tame and bold in some circumstances, such as in island resorts within the Great Barrier Reef region.[3]

The Buff-banded Rail is an omnivorous scavenger which feeds on a range of terrestrial invertebrates and small vertebrates, seeds, fallen fruit and other vegetable matter, as well as carrion and refuse. Its nest is usually situated in dense grassy or reedy vegetation close to water, with a clutch size of 3-4. Although some island populations may be threatened, or even exterminated, by introduced predators, the species as a whole appears to be safe and its conservation status is considered to be of Least Concern.

Great Grey Owl
That's a GREAT Great Grey Owl picture....

I had one hanging around for half of the winter but was rarely able to get near it. Apologies for the quality of the second picture, it was taken at quite a distance and is upsampled (worse than 100 percent crop).... but you can see the mouse hanging from the beak.... it swallowed it whole!
