I tweaked my knee a bit at work last week and it left me immobile friday and saturday but this morning i was able to get out a bit.
Started off at Iona and took a walk around the ponds to see if the Tufted duck was apparent, it wasn't and i wasn't going to scan through the whole flock, lighting wasn't great, it was raining and i have it already so, off to Riverport to look for the Townsend's Solitaire. All i knew was that it was being seen near the Old Spaghetti Factory so a quick wander around the parking lot yielded nothing, off to Richmond Nature park next, they have a covered area where i have shot in the rain before and this time i actually set up my camera and took a few shots at +1000 ISO.
Saw my first Rufous of the year along with a few Anna's fighting for territory near the feeders.
You can always tell when someone has been shooting at the nature centre feeders because the BG gets that robin's egg blue hue from the nature centre walls.
