Birds, Birds, Birds

I was up with the birds this morning.  Out of bed at 5:00 am and out the door at 5:30 am headed to the Heritage Hills Wetlands east of the city for sunrise at 5:53am.

It's great to be out with the camera at that time because the birds are out and busy with getting their day started.  Of course, some have been awake for a while already. 

The order of business these days is to find a place to build a nest, lay some eggs, keep them warm and safe and birth some offspring.

The couples are all out together these days still in the decision making process. 

I passed several birdhouses which have occupants very busy gathering supplies for nest building.

The Red Wing Blackbirds, the White Pelicans and all manner of ducks are living at the wetlands.

It was a bit cloudy with intermittent sun so the perfect weather for photos.

The top photo is an American Wigeon male, the center is the Red Wing Blackbird male, and a House Finch male.  The wigeon and finch are first time captures for me. 

A great morning with lots of birds out and about.

You can check my Flickr page for more photos.

  1. Oh Sulvia -- these are indeed so splendid. Beautiful work.

  2. I think the birds would concur that you took lovely photos of them. 5:30 in the morning, huh. You go, Lady!
