3 Shrikes in the same morning!! This guy with the lizard seemed to want me to take his photo! He moved from inside the tree to a top branch, then sat there waiting.

According to my Peterson field guide, this duck is very rare along in the United States!! Because they're rare in the states, I'm not going to mark them on my map! Their location is secret! Let them winter over in peace!
A Bufflehead is the closest I've come up with. This could be a young female, not sure.

This guy really,really wanted his picture taken! He was soaring over the parks laundry room when I came out, and I swear he followed me down to my trailer where I grabbed the camera!
