17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Oregon Junco in repose in the sun-drenched orchard.

I headed to the orchard on this late April day to soak up some much needed sun and to see what birds might be there to photograph. I was pleased to find one of my favorite locals - the Oregon Junco - resting on this Douglas Fir branch. I loved how he was so peacefully surveying the sun-filled landscape around him.
