This was taken at the end of a short trail, at an area with a wonderful overlook.  I had my camera set for those bright light conditions, hoping for some birds flying by, when I spotted some activity in the relatively dark shadows nearby.  I took a couple of quick grab shots before the bird left, but didn't have time to reset my exposure.  This image was actually quite underexposed, but with some time in Photoshop, I was able to at least salvage a shot of this species I haven't seen anywhere else.
