Hi all, I've been waiting for the migration, and finally it is arriving, what a treat, even though most ponds remain iced over. Supposedly it's going to get nicely "hot" the next few days here in central AB so I'm looking forward to even more "migration!!"

I drove the country roads tonight looking for evidence of spring migration. All below photographed with the Mark III and 300/4 IS. I enjoyed seeing these beautiful birds returning.


I always enjoy seeing these "golden" cuties returning



A group of Pintails (I love that bird) and Mallards


Focus on Pintail


The male Shoveller is an amazing duck and it's a pleasure seeing it again!


Male and female Goldeneye


Mallards leaving a ditch alongside a field of dead grain that soon will become greenish




Cheers all, spring is amazing
