Some Birds (A pretty black one included) - BIGMA

I was not feeling to good the other day so I only went down by the river rather than go out into the woods.

Black Bird with cool colored wings



I almost missed these they were almost past when I heard them.



Magpie ( I think ) having lunch



Magpie after lunch (needs a napkin)



I think I saw my friend from last year WOODY the woodpecker while I was there so I will be going on a Woody Hunt

Great shots for one who is not feeling well (hope it is nothing too serious).

Catching the flyings ducks so sharply takes some doing, congrats.

Those photos are excellent. I especially like the photo of the red winged blackbird. Looks like a Karsh of Ottawa picture, If Karsh had taken portraits of animals. The Canada Geese pix is also very good.

You have the eye. Also I think your combo of the Pentax K10D and as you call it the Bigma Lens is top flight.

Thanks for asking Darren. I just got a little to tired working on (Revenue Work) web sites. I was pretty lucky to get the Geese I heard them and quickly aimed the camer and pressed the shutter to start burst mode.

Thanks for the kind comment and for looking.

Tom thanks for the information. I think they should call it a red & yellow wing blackbird.

Thanks for looking.

Roger,

The second BIF pict is awesome.
And the line up just top it all.
Great shots. That is the type of shots for the book.
For Redwing Blackbird, I could barely manage one last summer

We occasionally see red wing blackbirds around here, but not often. They are so pretty, and your picture is wonderful. Love the framing of the geese, too, but the blackbird is my favorite.
