Red-necked Grebe (deceased) at Gros Cap
Gros Cap - it was pretty windy!
Dead mouse (deer mouse??) - I saw almost as many dead things at Gros Cap as alive.
Hermaphrodite-ish female Mallard - note green in head, dark lore, dark rump, sprays of whitish feathers along flank - on a side note, the bird from my other post turned out to be just a late bloomer - I saw the same male Mallard later in the break and he had filled in quite a few adult feathers!
American Black Duck x Mallard hybrid (green head, whitish feathers on flank, odd coloured rump)
As you can tell, I was quite proficient at finding dead birds that would be rare for the area in winter - this is a Double-crested Cormorant
Herman got right in there to fight for food!
Oh hey there.
A species I have surprisingly few 'good' photos of...Rock Pigeon
This Downy Woodpecker allowed me to approach within 3 feet - camera stops focusing at 4.5!
Cedar Waxwing at Dunbar Forest
A Red-winged Blackbird in January? What global warming? Note the three robins in background.
American Robin checking me out
Female Pine Grosbeak pigging out on berries
Emily's shot of the Snowy Owl that she spotted (taken with my camera)
A real American Black Duck...none of that hybrid business
Another shot of Herman, just because...
White-throated Sparrow - another late lingerer
The famous Mountain Bluebird in Puslinch, and her Eastern companion
Looking for bugs - they were quite tame, actually flying closer to me!
