WOOD DUCKS

Wood Ducks

I took this photograph last May.  The wood ducks had arrived a few weeks earlier and were sporting their fine breeding colours.  I imagine they are back at the lake this year. I do hope we get to enjoy them again at one point this summer.

DUCK OUT OF WATER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Wood duck

I took a break from aiming at warblers high in the pine trees when I saw the wood duck. I don’t often see these birds on land and thought the background made for an interesting photo. (I don’t think anyone with me noticed the wood duck, as they had their eyes trained on the quick darting warblers.)

NORTHERN CARDINALS (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

CardinalsA bit of cheer brought to you by this handsome pair. This bridge is a nice place to stop and look around to see where the locals are. Cardinals are usually pretty skittish but these two weren’t. Lucky for me.

DAPPER DUCK

Mallard on rock

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I’m pretty partial to mallards. I never get tired of photographing them. Unlike their more flashy cousins, many are here year round, always ready for a close up or group photo. Good looking ducks full of personality.
