Well, the last 2 weeks hve been a bit nonproductive. A lot of my efforts have been looking for owls and other wildlife. Unfortunately, I didn't find much of anything other than some signs of them. This past weekend was pretty nice. Went to Plum Island to find snowy owls and we found 4 of them. Too bad they were so far out that pictures were useless. Got to see a lot of nice birds but not many close enough for pictures. However, I did get to a nearby river to check out the water birds there. I was quite surprised to find so many different ones in a small area. All were taken with my 20D and 100-400mm zoom. Can't remember and too lazy to check exif data.

Yeah - Really!

I love the Hooded Merganser - while not rare they're not exactly common either. The female is the cutest duck in the world!
