Week 13 (March 26 - April 1, 2015) Part 2 of 3

Birds I saw in the park:

In the mall parking lot where I go to take the photos of the rookery are what I like to call beggar birds. Birds that hang around waiting for folks to throw out some bread which, despite signs saying not to feed the birds, people do every day.

Some of the beggar birds:

Week 13 (March 26 - April 1, 2015) Part 3 of 3

The Rookery:

This part consists of photos of the rookery. I made two visits during the week. On the second visit, many cormorants were perched on the trees in the rookery. I believe most were migrants on their way north. Most were gone when I visited today. I have posted additional photos in the members showcase.

I enjoyed looking at your bird shots Martha.
You have beautiful birds in your part of the world.

Critique & comments welcome, Love to learn. :photo:

One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

Week 14 (April 2 - April 8, 2015) Part 1 of 2

The old rookery

I finally got around to checking out the old rookery. It doesn't seem to have more than 3 or 4 nests, but is a great roosting place for the cormorants. One of the nests appears to have a great blue heron on it.

Week 14 (April 2 - April 8, 2015) Part 2 of 2

Went walking in the woods to check out which wildflowers were blooming. I planted the bleeding hearts at the edge of the woods last year and was happy to see they have survived.

Nice shots Martha. Looks like your flowers and other vegetation are coming along a bit better than ours here.
