American Pipit- Mt Baker, North Cascades

I found this American Pipit during my vacation to Washington state. It was seen during one of our hikes at Artist Point, Mount Baker. The American Pipit breeds on barren mountaintops and tundra. They have a white eye ring and show a streaky breast.







This is my entry for the Friday Ark and Bird Photography weekly, thanks for stopping by my blog and
to see more animals from the ark and more birds click on my links. Thanks to the hosts.

Nice shots of the pipit Eileen. Over here in UK we know it as Buff-bellied Pipit and it is closely related to our Rock Pipit.

Cute photos of the pipit, Eileen! It's always a joy to watch pipits bob-bobbing as they hunt for insects.

Very pretty bird!

Wonderful selection here. Your mosaic/collage is fantastic. When I try them somehow I always seem to cut half the pictures out. I like the "gent" in his red shirt having a beer? You header is excellent.
