Just a word of warning.If you do not like birds,now would be a good time to find something else to look at.
It finally feels like spring and the birds are showing up.I love this time of year.
At my house the Dark-eyed Juncos are busy.I was sitting probably 7 feet away from this feeder,so I was able to get some nice close shots.This picture was taken with the Canon SX50.
A stop at the Kaleida Marsh,gave me many chances at Ring-billed Gulls.In time I will be sharing more of these,but for today,here is one that actually stood on the ice for a few minutes.
This was captured with the Canon 7D and a 100-400mm Canon lens.
Closer to home at a small pond,I found these Mallards and Wood Ducks.They were much too far away for a really good picture,but I still like the natural look of this.Once again I pulled out the Canon SX50 for this image.
Easter Sunday afternoon was spent at the Pembina Valley Hawk-watch.Like I have said before,it is not just hawks that we see.On Sunday we had huge flocks of American Pelicans come over.To look up and see the sky filled with a swirling mess of white and black wings was almost enough to cause one to become dizzy.It was estimated that we saw around 300 Pelicans that day.
Camera used was the Canon 7D,with 100-400mm Canon lens.
Not all birds that pass overhead can flap their wings,nor would we want them to.
This airliner soared through the blue sky,and I had to get a shot,just because that is what Jake would have done. This picture is posted with special memories of Jake.
I share the following verse for no special reason,except that I like it.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
