Spring birds #1

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed the long weekend, both for Canada and US.  Bill and I took off for the long weekend, on a birding expedition.  Lots of new pictures to come.  But first let's start with the May spring migration pictures.

These were all taken at Pt. Pelee National Park.  Enjoy!


 Peek-a-boo, I see you!
 



One of my favourite warbler picture this year is the Philadelphia warbler.  Isn't he just the sweetest little bird? So soft and fluffy.  This would also make a beautiful baby gift to have one of these framed!




The worm eating warbler is a rare warbler to find.  Warblers do not sit still for more than a couple of seconds so it was very  hard to capture this picture.  I think Bill said that he took almost 300 pics to get 2 that were good!

I hope you enjoyed these photos.  Have a wondeful day!

  2. I'm completely overwhelmed. First of all, I don't know what Bill's gig is, but he does the best bird photography I've ever seen. No exaggeration. You mentioned 300 pics of the worm eating warbler. I know it takes a lot, but that's dedication and so worth it! I was immediately struck by how unusual that bird is. Good job, Bill! And, yes, the Philadelphia warbler would be so sweet in a baby's room. I would love to have a group of all three pics on display in my home. Outstanding! The close up pics take me right there with you and I so appreciate that. You have no idea how these move me. I finally Googled "why are there so many birds at Point Pelee" and now I understand. How wonderful to have such a place close to home. We get some migration here, but nothing like that, and certainly not in my yard. We do have raccoons and trillium in abundance. These dear birds make such an epic journey every year. Simply fascinating. Thank you so much for sharing these, Pauline. I do look forward to more.

  3. I'm not surprised that it took 300 shots to get the photo's. My husband takes hundreds of photo's when he's shooting. And you're correct about the warbler not sitting long. We are beginning to learn about our native Carolina birds now. And because we live near the ocean we see many different kinds. Beautiful post, Pauline.

  4. I use photos on some of my cards. May I copy and print some of Bill's outstanding pictures to use on cards if I credit him somewhere on the card?
