Project 365 4-6 through 4-16-2013

Oh oh! Now I let myself get even farther behind. This will be a long post, so not too many words. Ive had a couple exciting weeks of nature photography, so I am just going to skip to my shots and put details under each one. Have a good week!! I am also linking this post to Wild Bird Wednesday.

4-6
Wild Turkey I came across while out for a drive.

4-7
I know the Red Winged Blackbird is a common bird, but I liked this shot. The bird was in the middle of a tree and I was able to put my lens in there and get a shot.

4-8
 Left to right: Male Lesser Scaup, Male Bufflehead and Female Lesser Scaup.

4-9
 Male Ruddy Duck. They are a very small duck with a greenish blue bill. 

4-10
 Northern Shoveler - another new species added to my Audubon Life List.

4-11
My favorite loon shot. Sadly they are gone now. Migrated through this area.

4-12
I dont know if these are male or female, but it was an interesting show they put on!

4-13
I was so excited to see this bird! It is a Horned Grebe! This bird was just migrating through, but gave me a thrill none the less. I waited and waited for it to come in close enough to be able to get a good shot of it. The next day I went back, there were 3 of them. Haven't seen them since. another for my Audubon Life List. Im now at 86.

4-14
Male and Female Redhead Ducks. Number 87 for my life list!

4-15
Male and female Mallards with immature Mallard in foreground.

4-16
Bird number 88 for my Audubon Life List. A Yellow Rumped Warbler - Myrtle What a thrill this was for me, seeing this gorgeous bird in front of me!

There you have it, 10 days of bird shots!! See you in a few days.

The family squabble is a gem, as is the rising loon. Great shots.

Neat collection of images! It's one of the better shoveler photos I've seen - you really caught its shape and colors.
