Some of the other birds at Lock & Dam 14 from the other day. I have 3 images for you today.
I enjoy photographing the gulls that are always present. I know some of the other photographers at the dam probably wonder about me ripping off 20 shots of a common gull flying by but it is good practice and keeps up your panning technique. 🙂
I am going to have to defer to my friend Andreas, on the identity of this water fowl. I think it might be a wood duck but I’m no expert on water fowl. Two of the other photographers there that day both got up close to the bird and took photos of it. They both asked me what it was and I was of course clueless. So I don’t feel so bad knowing other photographers don’t always know their species.
This pelican swam past me so close I had to back my focal length off to get him all in the frame. They are methodical fishers until they find some fish then all hell breaks loose as they get into a feeding frenzy.
That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
A White-winged Scoter has been spotted at this location for several weeks by other birders. I think it is a first winter female. They spend the summer in northern Canada.
I don’t have this bird in my photo library yet. You are lucky Dave!
Thank you Andreas. The other photographers were pretty excited by this bird. I’m glad your presentation went well. I would have loved to hear it. All the best my Friend.
