We found the King Eider!

Male King Eider

My friend and I set out on another photography adventure on an overcast chilly day in December.  After a few disappointing shots of Cardinals, a man along the path saw our photo equipment and said "Are you looking for the Eider?"  I told him I am looking for anything that will allow me to photograph it!  With a the tip from a stranger, we were on our way to capturing an image of a very rare, beautiful bird.  We ran into about 4 other people that were also in search of this diving duck.  We eventually spotted him, and took as many shots as we could!

White Throated Sparrow
He's not quite as exciting as the King Eider, but I added a new bird to my list, the White-Throated Sparrow.
