Snap: Birds

2016…and time for a new meme from Helena. This year it is “Snap”: between 2 and 4 photos that create a visual set.

I am very fortunate to live just a few minutes from a new neighbourhood that has 3 separate retention ponds…and quite a variety of birds that hang around the ponds.

There is my favorite Canada Geese and goslings swimming in the middle pond:


Hanging about on the opposite side of the largest pond(never close enough to get a good shot even with my 210 mm lens) are some Kildeer:


And again on the opposite side of the largest pond, a Spotted Sandpiper:

Flying over the ponds was this Common Tern:

It takes me forever to identify the birds..and I hope I am correct!

  1. I think your bird SNAP is wonderful. The one of the Canadian Goose & her goslings is perfect with her staring right at you. We get a lot of Kildeer in the field behind us – to me their cry is so plaintive & sad, it borders on frantic.
