I found this pair of birds foraging for bugs near my shop one day. They obviously had young somewhere nearby. It's usually easier to get shots when they're near the ground as they were in this instance but it makes capturing images more challenging due to low light conditions under the canopy of maple, pine, spruce and fir trees. This is the same male as in the earlier pictures. I should mention that the female looks like it could be a totally different species, there is not much similarity between the sexes. One feature they both have is the patch of white at the base of their primary feathers. June 16, East Jordan NS.
