So I was driving home along a back road (surprise, surprise), when this beauty landed on a woodpile RIGHT BESIDE THE ROAD! I got off a few quick pics before a motorcycle showed up and the magic moment was over. I turned around and came back, but she was too skittish and shy by then. Not great pics, but a GREAT bird to add to my collection!
Yes, YOU ARE the pretty bird :-)
