November 15th, 2012: A Local Park

Today we went to another local park, across the river from last week's park (see that post here). Both places have a lot of wildlife year round. I went with a friend and we had a lot of fun again!

We saw a lot of different birds and only 1 deer. We saw deer, bunny and dog tracks, and I was thankful not to run into any dogs or coyotes lol

Also last week my pictures were horribly grainy and dark. I figured out why, they sold me a Neutral Density filter, said it would protect my lens... Won't be using it again. My pictures are so much better without.




Pygmy Nuthatch...




Ducks...







Mallard Ducks...




Canada Goose...

Evidence of Beavers... 

Canadian Geese...



Mallard Ducks flying... LOVE the silhouettes they made, I did not edit the below picture with the pink at all. I love it!

And my friend pointed this out, doesn't it look like a male deer... so cool...

Thank you Lee & Marlene,

Lee - It was actually really nice, I wasn't cold at all. It was 4 Celsius / 39 Fahrenheit... which for us is a nice day.

Marlene - These were Bohemian Waxwings, very close to the cedar waxwings, these just have red on them. There were a lot of them, we could see them flying from tree top to tree top. Glad I finally figured out what they were.

The Cedar Waxwings I see at a park closer to my house all the time. They are both beautiful birds!

Thank you Kathy & Stacy,

Your right... the more eyes the better for noticing stuff.

We are going out again today, supposed to be a beautiful day 8 Celsius / 46 Fahrenheit. Going with 2 friends today and hopefully multiple places, not sure yet where!

Bringing bread for the ducks this time, I always forget!
