The three of us are here in Missoula for a couple of days in accordance with a weather problem. The original plan got canceled because of the rain and thunder so we decided to spend our time doing some shooting outside of town. There are some great birding places that we took advantage of. The Yellow-headed Blackbirds were busy chasing each other, at least the males were doing some chasing, and so they continually were posing for us on top of the reeds and cat tails. The blackbirds are very addictive to photograph, the yellow on them just kinda sucks u in.
One of the birds that we first got photograph in South Dakota, the Eastern Kingbird, were all over the place. These guys are so cool. The pose like no other on the barbed wire and are very expressive. With there pointy crown and white tipped tail, the kingbird is definetely one worth photographing. With one more day around in Montana, i look forward to getting in a little more time with the critters.
