I've made it out into the field several times since I have gotten Rebel, and I've been very content with the results that have been produced with this new camera. This post will show a selection of photographs that I have obtained so far. I don't have time for lengthy text on this post, and I won't say a whole lot about the photos other than what they are and where they were taken. I am going to include a song on this post. If you wish, play and listen to the song while scrolling down and looking at the photos. It's another upbeat Lincoln Brewster song, this one is called "Oxygen". Play it and enjoy the photos!
Inca Dove, Northern Greens Apartment Homes
Dark-eyed Junco, Northern Greens Apartment Homes
Aleutian Cackling Goose, Crystal Gardens Parkway. A rarity in Arizona, especially this race of Cackling Goose. Found by Melanie Herring.
Snow Geese, Crystal Gardens Parkway
Ross's Goose, Crystal Gardens Parkway
Great Blue Heron, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands
American White Pelican, Tres Rios Overbank Weltnads. I watched this Pelican for a good ten minutes, who wanted to land, but decided..not to land....
Immature Bald Eagle, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands
Cooper's Hawk, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands. This was a neat experience, one that I happened to stumble across. It was fun to watch this juvenile Cooper's Hawk bathing in the water channel. The hawk was cooperative and as shown, it allowed me to approach closer than most hawks do!
American Redstart, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands. Found by Caleb Strand, this is one of the coolest birds I've seen recently. I've seen plenty of female American Redstarts over the years, but prior to this year, I had never seen an adult male. This is the first adult male American Redstart I've gotten to photograph, and it gave quite an entertaining show!
Belted Kingfisher, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands
Northern Parula, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands. My discovery!
Black-throated Gray Warbler, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands
Ash-throated Flycatcher, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands
Loggerhead Shrike, Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands
Long-eared Owl, Undisclosed Location. What an awesome bird...
Merry Christmas Everyone! Hopefully I'll be able to write some trip report posts soon like usual. Stay tuned for more to come in 2016 as well as my annual post where I recap the year of 2015.
