for all you who like to shoot Birds... lots of cool stuff
Had the opportunity to get a closeup of a Redtail Hawk at our local Nature Center.
Made for a great HDR
Here is a momma Mallard and her babies swimming by.
Baby Mallard - we were out kayaking one morning last spring when we came upon this baby all by itself, just swimming around. It's parents were nowhere around, we think that the momma was downriver about 1000' ft or so that we past later. I don't know what ever became...
Green Heron (Just wish it had been looking at me)
Great Blue Heron

Eagles one imature enjoy some food
Near the Farmington River in Canton, CT
There maybe snow on the ground but the water is fine so come on in :D
The Sigma 50-500 is pretty much junk in really low light. I was out birding the other day at a NWR and it was heavy overcast with on and off snow showers. Was having difficulty tracking birds on auto-focus. I decided to attempt manual focus and this is what I came home with. Not too shabby.
A Roseate Spoonbill (a.k.a. Dorkbird) takes poses for a photo at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
Short Eared Owl taken over the recent holidays. Pretty close pass by this bird and this was the only shot I managed to get that was reasonably in focus.
Some more winter visitors from the the far North. As much as I hate winter, it is my favorite time of year to get out and shoot, beacuse winter migration brings all the coolest birds down our way :)
1. Northern Harrier
2. Short Eared Owl
3. Snow Bunting
Another Common Redpoll, this time in great light :)
was at the dump a few months ago and heard this racket... some birds were having a loud discussion so on my way out i stopped to check it out and found these two... like always, the guy was working on their house and the know it all wife wouldn't stop nagging and squawking at him.. "its wrong"...
A few Common Redpolls who were rather photo friendly from a recent outing.
Caught this guy in our backyard today looking for something interesting to shhot in the bleak early days of winter:)
Look out your day is coming real soon. :eek:
Yes can thankgiving be far off? :D
This is one of our Loon pair feeding their young.
