Birds

Robin with Nest Material
Robin with Nesting Material: ISO800, 400mm, f/6.3, 1/1250

Spring is finally here in Quinte West, Ontario! I went for a quick walk this cold morning to find some birds along a fence line. I spotted blackbirds, starlings, chickadees and robins.

This robin was showing off the material it collected to help build the nest in the cedar tree.

Duck and Heron

It has been awhile since I posted anything to my photo blog. Spring has come early to Airdrie, Alberta. The vegetation is turning green early. We have been in need of rain and it has finally fallen this past weekend and today.

I had to take a walk today and thought I would do some exploring along the banks of the Nose Creek. The waterfowl are out as well as this Great Blue Heron.
