    Spring birds finally

    The weather has started to turn and a few birds are starting to come in, and some winter birds have yet to leave. It was nice to finally get out again, couple weeks of poor weather. Happy Easter all! C&C always welcome.

    Cinnamon Teal....I saw one last year...so I was happy to get a shot so soon this year.

    This Eagle caught himself a fish and was not about to share....didn't stop the crow from trying.

    Stunning photos. My favourite is the black bird for the perfect lighting, clarity and detail.

    Paul, very nice series. I especially like the crow - the lighting- and the eagle. That shot tells a story. It will be a while before our lakes thaw and then maybe some of your birds will come visit.
