I was recently thinking about what it was that got me back into photography a few years ago. I work near a park that has a good variety of diffirent birds, and it was the challenge of catching them all and sharing their pics that did it. Here are a few of my favorites from Alton Baker Park in Eugene, Oregon.

I believe that first bird is a Western Tanager.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Beautiful shots, nice variety. Even though this may offend my favorite bird the osprey, I think my fav in this set is the Canada gosling. Nice park :)

Hey, thanks a bunch for all the great comments everybody! I'm glad you all like them. It's a great park and I've always come away with at least a couple keepres every single time I've visited there. It doesn't seem to matter what time of year or weather either.

Thanks!
