Here's another photo quiz for all of you busy January "listers" and casual conservationists - name that bird!
Even though I have done essentially no birding outside of work-required time in the field, it is on my January list. It would likely be found in open areas similar to the photo. It may be alone, as it is here in this photo, or it may not. This is the sort of view you might get through a scope or some strong binoculars.
It is not much to go from, but I have faith in the skills of our readers. I'll put the answer up in a few days.
