It finally feels like winter with our first really cold weather of the season and more snow in the forecast.  Snow is always an excellent backdrop for a good wildlife photo and you will see several examples below with more to follow next week if the weather reports pan out.

Highlights this week include a Wilson’s Snipe, a Monk Parrot in the snow,  Western Tanager and the elusive Grey Ghost- a mature male Northern Harrier.

This week’s cover goes to Robert Kaplan with an outstanding image of a Belted Kingfisher in flight with a fresh catch.
