William Hawrelak Park, Edmonton, AB, Canada.
7D | 300/2.8L + 2x | 1/250 sec., f/7.1, ISO 1250, Flash w/ Better Beamer @ -1; handheld.
Wish I had my intermediate telephoto lens, the 70-200, to fit the entire bird in the frame. The pheasant was perching nicely to give a few of us some photo ops. Removing the TC was not an option as it gets messy when the lens is not on tripod. One more photo added in the comment box below. Enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving to our neighbours south of the border.

A pair of Gray Partridges that hung around near my office window every morning in March came back and buried themselves into the snow for the whole day in the midst of a snow storm throughout Edmonton and area.
