I have a friend who informs me that I take a lot of “foliage” photos.True enough and here are a few from this morning:
The last few days I have been hiking far from the lake but today (11 degrees and cloudy), I decided to do some lakeside bird watching and see how the spring migration is progressing.
Two of the most common birds at Humber Bay at the moment are these:
Some of the ducks which soon will be heading north are still here:
Other birds that I was able to photograph:
Red-necked Grebes are very vocal now and a few of the smaller Horned Grebes were about:
I also had my first Tree Swallow of the spring overhead. There was also a migrating Fox Sparrow on its way to Newfoundland or the far north.
The Fox Sparrow has a much redder appearance than the Song Sparrow:
There was an exciting visitor in my yard today and I took many photos:
I prepared a post of 15 photos with text by my grandfather; Dr. J. Murray Speirs, which is now on line: https://mileshearn.com/2020/03/26/carolina-wren-dr-j-murray-speirs/
Where the telescope ends, the microscope begins.
Which of the two has the grander view? – Victor Hugo (1802–85)
Your shot of a Carolina Wren face-on, singing, should win an award. Thanks for keeping your photos coming Miles.
How nice to see this. I know, I’m going to run out of ways of saying this. But it really helps! Just make sure you go early enough not to “run into” people (I know you do!)
Thanks so much Miles, a total stress releaser to go on a walk with you, even a virtual one!
