    I was camping with my dad in the Coast Range Mountains of Oregon this last week and we were identifying birds (in the morning). Here is an montage image made up of eight pictures I took of a certain bird we couldn't identify. http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/8191/birdidentityjuly15th201.jpg...
