Migration

The birds know Winter is coming.

Sandhill Cranes make the trip to the warmer South in stages, pausing along the way to rest and glean the fields for food.

The opportunity to watch them and make photographs presents itself annually.

We are fortunate to be on the flyway and the presence of large farms in our area provides the resting spots.

Summer Colour

The colours of Summer are magnified by bright days and a visit to a garden.

When you get lucky the birds contribute as well.

Heron Fun

There were a lot of Great Blue Herons around this summer.

A bumper crop in fact.

Flying Creatures

I acquired a new lens and have a lot of fun photographing things that fly.

This Spring provided ample opportunity to find subjects.

Summer Passed Quickly

Yes, I know this is the first post in a while.

No excuses. Or explanations.

Lots of photos made. Lots of photos processed.

A fine summer has passed.

Over the next while I’ll try to catch up.

Early and mid spring saw the emergence of life from the winter sleep.

Spring Maintenance

The ospreys have returned for another year.

First order of business is to make repairs to the nest.

The Birds Of Winter

We have been feeding now for about two months and have attracted a following of regulars.

At breakfast there is a show outside our windows which is a great way to start the day.

The Blue Jays knock on the glass if their peanuts are not out on time.

The other birds are less greedy and their feeders last a couple of days before they need refilling.

Here are some of our regulars.

Blue Jays out my Window

The Blue Jays come to visit the feeder and before they make a run for the peanuts, they sit in the trees and consider their chances.

They are very wary, but always successful.
