Great shots. Did you get a chance to checkout the feeders where Evening Grosbeaks often visit at the Nature Centre.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

One of my favorite birds in my favorite park. Now, that weather, however.....nope.
Now, it was -43 this morning when I left for work, so maybe -35 could be seen as an improvement?
Great shots Jeff!

You know what Mike, I don't know what its like at -43 but -35c is so different that -25, it makes -25 feel warm so ???? how is your camera at -43?? at -35 my 7D gets very frosty in 10 or 15 min's
