nice stuff birdie! you've stolen all my birds for the winter but i'm glad to see they are providing good photo ops. i guess they'll be back here in the northeast soon enough. the loose crop on the willet is great, i really like the wave rolling behind him.
Thanks Dorian. Oh how I wish I could keep them. I really enjoyed photographing them.
Great shots Birdie!! My fave is #1. I'll try at IDs. I do beleive 1 is a Willet, 2 is a Spotted Sandpiper, and 3 is a Ruddy Turnstone in winter plumage (I think).
Thank you Ashley for the comments and the IDs, much appreciated.
Very nice set, Birdie. Yep, 3 is a Ruddy Turnstone. The last one is a Pelican
Nice lighting in the second shot
Thank you Socrate, much appreciated.
Beauts, Birdie. Love that first one. Send the shorebirds north some time soon please.
Thanks Tony ! Will send them north when you send me more hummers
Love the set Birdie with the 1st and last as my favorites
Thank you Tim, very much !
Nice onces. Like the first and last best.
Jude, much appreciated.
Yep no. 3 is a Ruddy Turnstone, this one photographed near my house in Melbourne Australia.
When I observed the bird, I noticed it was limping, only when I got home and uploaded, I discovered three tags....
Tags seemed very tight, so I was concerned..
Managed to contact the people who tagged it, it was last tagged in King Island off South East Australia, and they reckoned that the tags were all fine and not too tight..........
Got to wonder though......
Your shot is wonderful. I have only seen hummers being banded. However the banner explained that the band should NEVER be on the upper part of the leg. Shore birds may be different.
very nice Roberta.. #1 and #4 for me also
Much appreciated Kenny !
Well done again Birdie. In 3, it looks like there is a baby gator approaching the burd... I love the pose in 1, and it's an extra nice shot. 4 is another pick - great detail in the head and beak - a great looking image ~ Ron
Thanks Ron ! Love what you see in the third
Good looking set Roberta. Willet is my pick of the set. Well done. Peli is nice too.
Ken, much appreciated, thank you!
Looks like I'll follow the crowd. #1 and 4 for me :-)
#3 looks like a ruddy turnstone.
Glad you like them, thanks Charles !
#1 is the pick here. Nicely captured. Don
Thanks so much Don !
Very nice Roberta
I'm going with # 1 & 4
Lil, hope all is well. Thanks for looking and glad you like them.
Nice shore birds. First and last one for me.
Tam, thank you very much
I love pelicans...last one for me!
Thank you , I love them too
