There is a special light which is only found as the sun rises:
Having visited many forest locations this week, with few birds, I decided to visit Humber Bay and took almost 1200 photos. These are what I consider the better ones.
Though it is still early spring, these House Sparrows are already thinking family:

Thanks Miles for this most entertaining video. Hilarious and surprising are these endearing and captivating creatures.
Wonderful photos 🙂
Magical light and beautiful photos, Miles! Many thanks!
Lovely pictures at dawn, Miles. The golden light reflection on the water is a beautiful background. I noticed the picture of the house sparrow on the tree swallow box. Well the tree sparrows have returned to Marie Curtis Park as I saw some yesterday. (I have a picture too).
Wow! Gorgeous photos! Thanks!
Awesome! What a magnificent collection of pictures of birds and ducks! House Sparrows mating–definitely a first, for me! Incredible.
I love the dawn, and I get up early enough to see it these days, but since I face west, I get a better look at sunsets. I love both! The colours are gorgeous, here. As usual, you’ve outdone yourself, MIles. You go from strength to strength, the “extra Mile” (how many times have you had to hear that one?) Thanks!
(P.S. I’m looking forward to “The Birds”, too, but right now, I am listening to Saturday Afternoon at the Opera on the radio with human singing, so it will have to wait!)
thanks Miles, lovely photos
You don’t need a long lens, you’re capturing the birds etc very well. what lens do you use?
Love the photos with mirror reflections, beautiful.
finally the birds are returning to our feeders more and more. As well as the red squirrels, chipmunks and never ending squirrels.
As for “The Birds”—anyone who loves music has to love the singing of birds. Birds must have inspired humans to sing!
