      Alpine Accentor

In 2014 I found an alpine accentor at the Port de Bucharro above Gavarnie in the Pyrenees.  It was remakably tame and spent some time pecking around just a few feet away.

This chap came to help me eat my lunch at a refuge in the Pyrenees at about 8500 ft above sea level.  It sat by my feet as I was relaxing in the noon sun.
