A large flock of American Pipits were busy working the recently cut wheat fields at this farm pond north of Moscow, Idaho.

These birds are so well camouflaged. I was down low watching the birds that were about 50 feet away, and though I could hear them peeping to one another, it was nearly impossible to see them as they foraged in the stubble. Only when they would fly to another area was I able to see where they were feeding.

This bird popped down to the pond to get a drink and then it came close, allowing me to get a few shots.
