    Christmas Bird count Dec 16, 2012

    Spent yesterday on the Christmas Bird count. Beautiful Day at the National Bison Range. Along the short stretch of Mission Creek we flushed more than just a few Mallards. Estimated 5000+ filling the sky with brilliant green and blue along with a cacophony of sounds. Bald Eagles were also flying causing the Mallards to head in all different directions.
    This was a first for me. Just glad for digital cameras because I burned through almost 400 pictures during the day. A flock of Bohemian Waxwings were also very cooperative.

    That's a lot of duck! Must have been quite a sight, which that first image in particular, gives us a sense of.

    Phew is that duck photo real? i ve never seen so many. I just spent ages looking at it which i think is always a good thing. I really like it. My only comment on the pp would be, Is it a little too saturated as some of the heads seem to stand out a bit to much.
