It is that time of year when my eyes are often towards the sky.Birds are returning to this area and one just never knows what might appear in the sky.
I apologize that someone the birds are farther away than I would like them to be, but I just have no control over that.
The Northern Pintail Duck is a sleek and distinguished bird. Thus far they have not given me great opportunities for pictures, so I must take what I get. This pair in flight is quite lovely, in my opinion.
When I heard that there were several White-faced Ibis at one of the Kaleida Marshes,I had to go and find them.Again they were too far away, but the larger bird is the Ibis.I will not attempt to identify the other two waders.
A very common bird in these parts, in summer is the Ring-billed Gull.Since there are so many, they are relatively easy photo subjects.
I caught this one just as he was getting a snack of some sort.
Last but not least is the Turkey Vulture.What they lack for in beauty on their faces, they make up in those beautiful wings, as they soar through the sky.
To Think About:
Plunge into the blessings of spring…
the sprouting of trees and grass,
the sound of birds returning from their winter furlough,
the daffodils and tulips.
