A Panorama from the great white north...

These ducks hang around all winter and live off of handouts.. you can get VERY close to them, particularly if you have food. This section of river normally stays open here all winter (rapids) but this year it is completely frozen over and a number of ducks have lost their feet to frostbite... plus they have to eat snow to get water. A very rough year on them.

The last day that got up to "seasonal average" was in mid-November.... I have a hard time believing that they stayed.

Don, news yesterday - Great Lakes frozen over - wow.  But it's hot in Australia, wonder what the average is for the planet?

Sad to see the wildlife suffer but it's the way of the wild as it's always been.


Nice to see this thread continue to grow with lots of newcomers. :)

My limited understanding of climate models is that volatility is definitely to be expected by a rise in global temperatures.  I.e., it won't be a nice, even worldwide warming.

Been watching The Life of Birds documentary by the BBC, and so was happy to see Gary's "Love Dance" and Steven's heron fetching nest-building materials :)  Timely and well-executed captures one can only dream about.

Here's a Brown Shrike from day 2 of practicing with my Tamron at 600mm on 6D, f 8, 1/320, ISO 640 handheld (some cropping, sharpening, tweaking contrast, as the mid-afternoon side light was still a bit harsh):

Perched Brown Shrike

PS: BTW, for the sake of educating new birders like me, please do try to ID the birds posted -- thanks.

Can't complain about that!  The future looks bright.
