Some local geese.... I think they are named John, Paul, George, and Ringo...

Nice. If those are John, Paul, George, and Ringo, these are New Kids on the Block!

In a local pond, they are not afraid of people at all.

A quick visit to New York - managed to get to Central Park between meetings. I grabbed the wrong camera. My 5DIV was attached to the 100-400mm II and I took that pair instead of the 5DSR. The light has been so bad that I have been shooting up to iso 12,800, which negates the advantage of the smaller pixels. I have to admit that the consistency of AF on my 5DIV beats the 5DSR. It's a really impressive beast.

Lots of sparrows and starlings, even more than at home where sparrows are becoming rare. This is the first time I have seen a fledgling being fed.

And there were birds I don't have much chance of seeing: Northern Cardinal; Blackcrowned nightheron; Great White Egret; and a Grackle, all of which are common here of course but we don't have the Grackle and Cardinal back home. A fun place Central Park. I needed the 400 DO + 2TC for the Cardinal.

Jack kudos on that red wing blackbird in flight. It’s mouth is a cornucopia of insect delights, green worms 🐛 at least two damselflies. It’s the picture I’ve been trying to capture 😊.
