WOW Great shot, Stuart.  8)

I like how that amazing bird melts into the snow and those piercing eyes.

A Thayer's Gull.

I don't mind sea gulls by the sea.  Not so much in mall parking lots...

Yes and they tolerate our pavement and garbage quite nicely. ;)  And they even pose for us.

I've been educated a bit recently by the juncos returning with this guy/gal showing up as well.  Would it qualify as Pink-sided?

Lovely shot, Jack.  :)

Thanks.  Kind of pastel, that's why it caught my attention compared to all the other slate-colored (guessing).  Do you have these birds and their subspecies?

We have Juncos, but not this sub species. The Pink-sided is more of a western bird.

It breeds in the northern Rocky Mountains from southern Alberta to eastern Idaho and western Wyoming.

Click, so it follows that you agree with my ID.  I really am challenged observing all the nuances, as you know! OTOH there are some who are worse than me, at least I try.  ;)

Yes Jack, I agree with you on the bird's ID. It looks like a Junco Pink-sided to me.

...And you're very good Jack...As bird's watcher/photographer, and as a gentleman.   :)
