Click, believe me if I could I'd keep posting more shots but I only have a lot of repetition of the same birds (you know the 1DX2 is bad that way!  ;))

lol  :D

Very nice series, Jack. I especially like the first picture.  :)

Thanks to all! Nice pictures everyone, but Jack I'm pass on that sparrow, sorry!
And I have to agree with Jack about the posting of photos - one first have to take some pictures, maybe at the end of next weekend?

I like this picture for the light in the water and coming through the pelican's pouch.

I totally agree. I like it also. Very nice picture.

To all who posted,
Excellent photos.
Thanks you.

I'll just join with Riley and say without naming individuals that all are appreciated and to boot the information being added is a bonus.

Click, believe me if I could I'd keep posting more shots but I only have a lot of repetition of the same birds (you know the 1DX2 is bad that way!  ;))

dpc, v nice - I only saw one pelican and it flew over very high but here's the good news.  They are back at Miquelon lake after being "forced" out many years ago.

OK, her I am again unable to ID a sparrow.  Help.  Let's say I'm assuming based on my previous failings that it's a Song sparrow. :(

Hi Jack,

Nice sparrow series - second one is a bit washed out -and looking down- but especially the first is (to me) excellent!

Back end of a take-off... A frontal view would perhaps have been better if it were possible but I do like the positioning of the wings for some reason.  8)

dpc nice shots, however I can't look without hearing squawk, squawk, squawk ...  As a kid I'd raid the nests since I was quite a climber. ;)  I also had a 22.  >:(  Reformed long ago, though.

Wiebe, thanks, I wasn't thinking the sparrow series was worthy of posting but was hoping for positive ID.

Click, another shot of the RW blackbird before he took off, since you requested more of me.  ;)  Love the song of these guys.

Thanks Riley.

Here's one of inaction for you.  I like his "duck-tail". ;)

@Jack - really late, but regarding your sparrow, I believe it is a Savannah Sparrow, with the yellow eyebrow.

I caught one last year...
