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

  14. 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.

  18. 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.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
