I found this bird perched on a wire above me. The bird was skittish at first, but with slow approaches I was able to photograph it at a fairly close distance at eye-level. At one point, it actually threw up a pellet (not photographed, but can be seen in the last photo showing the moment before the pellet was expelled). With the browner colour overall, this bird is probably the first winter.

Wish everyone a wonderful weekend! Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians!
