This one apparently loves to sing loud and proud. :lol: Very nicely done shot, Bill.

Playing about with an image taken earlier in the year

Very nice image.
Lovely composition, colours and detail. They are very striking birds.

Not sure what playing about you did to get that knot in the grass but it worked  :p

Beautiful Kestrel Mike.
They sure have colourful and beautiful plumage
Looks like he's got you in its sights ready to let rip (fire its bundle) :p

In a few weeks these ducklings, if they survive the predators will have moved on to their next stop. Whistling ducks are found in the region but of recent years, they have not been seen with ducklings until now. Unfortunately, our waters are filled with all kinds of big predatorial fish and lizards waiting to make a meal out of these ducklings. Hope they can make it to adulthood.

On Golden Pond. As the sun set lit up the sky the waters on the pond reflected the warm sky light.

These are both very nice images. The adult in the first shot is very sharp.

Nice shot Paul. The lighting hit the grennie's face just right, and the background looks great.

Thanks for the kind words Mike.
Happy trails.

Thank you very much! Its a real heartbreak but the network of birders have passed on the information that there are only 4 ducklings left. It all began a week ago when there were 11 ducklings but the attrition is much too high for them to survive another week or so. Tragic and I feel for the two adult ducks.

Thank you very much!

They had a big batch of 11 ducklings. In 10 days they are down to only 4 ducklings today. Its awful and all the birders in the network here are heartbroken by the high attrition rate.
