Checking me out.

Nice Profile.

This pipit almost has a breast spot made of streaks similar to a Song-sparrow. Sometimes you luck out- the setting sun lit up this bird like a fill flash and the dark creek water behind the bird made for excellent contrast. Plus the bird was real cooperative- if only it was always this easy!
