Peep

Saturday Bird: Juvenile Red Knot

A juvenile Red Knot peeps at the photographer as it rests on the Lake Huron shoreline during autumn migration.

I had spent time photographing the bird so it was relaxed enough to bathe, preen and then rest in front of me.

I spent a week looking at this photo on the contents page of the Radio Times without recognising it as one of mine.

Two of a Kind: American Avocets

Two Of A Kind

Two summer plumage American Avocets feeding on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. Although the photo is as much about the ripples as the birds.

Plus I’ve always liked the two drops of water falling from the males bill. I say it’s a male because the bill is straighter than the bird in the background. The more curved bill means that the background bird is a female.

Singing Up in spring. A displaying male Yellow-headed Blackbird photographed near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. I’ve always liked the enthusiasm of the bird with its open bill and spread tail.

Lines of Snow Geese at Sunset

The birds are flying to roost at dusk during autumn migration. Photographed at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, a staging area for wildfowl on autumn migration. A little known wildlife spectacle.
