You guys/gals who live coast have probably seen a Siren before.
This was completely new to me! And to think the GBH swallowed the whole
thing.

Geeez! I've never seen one, but I'm pretty sure that it didn't struggle after that!

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

The supremely high level of quality in this thread never ceases to amaze me. Always a joy viewing the beautiful shots you all capture. Hope everyone is having a good time and enjoying life!

Spring migration is just getting started here, I'm thoroughly loving being outside and seeing the visitors stopping in. Just want to share some of the shots I've taken over the past two months, hope you enjoy!

The first migrant warbler, a Palm Warbler:

A male Red Junglefowl. I saw quite a few of these when I was in Singapore recently and apparently they are all wild birds. I feel almost embarrassed to have to add them to my world list - alongside Turkey, Guinea Fowl and a few other delicacies. Still, he's a very handsome bird.

A rather bizarre and somewhat grotesque-looking bird with red and blue patches of skin and a hardened "horn" on its head. My wife and I saw this and other guineafowl in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden located in Cape Town, South Africa.

Great series! Great Snipe, well all great but my one and only Wilsons Snipe sucks :)
Spring migration! Driving into the hospital tonight I could not turn on high-beams, snowing so hard.
