I was lucky enough to find this bird this morning just as it was getting light. ISO 2000 and some computer work was needed to make a presentable image.
This bird was found on Sunday in Missoula and I was lucky enough to be heading this way for work this week. I looked for it a bit yesterday evening but it apparently disappears during most of the day to someplace other than the nearly empty irrigation ditch it was originally found in, but at least on Monday and again today it returns to this spot early in the morning. Within about 20 minutes it had slowly made it's way down the ditch with the Wood Ducks it is keeping company with and disappeared from view.
