I would like another shot at this bird. This one was taken near dusk on an overcast day with a 1/80 shutter speed and the usual 400mm lens. I am surprised that it has any sharpnees at all.
There’s always gotta be a twig…
Wilde Lake in columbia. A drake and two hens spent most of the Winter there and were relatively comfortable around people.
Centennial Lake by the bridge. I never seem to get the ideal background when these opportunities come my way.
Despite 30 years of birding and a 560+ species seen – those who know me are aware of my frustation over the failure to spot a Screech Owl. Meet bird #570. Glad I was able to get reasonable photos of the event. This one is digiscoped.
The famous Newark Farms Bullock’s Oriole. Many thanks to the Kirkwood family for making this bird available.
Once again – Wilde Lake. These two were close enough that I could get just a little fill flash on them.
This was our consolation for striking out on the Golden Eagle at Pickering Creek – probably had it in the scope but never close enough for a positive ID.
Picked this one up while trying (and failing) for the Northern Lapwing near Easton.
