baltimoreoriole.jpgBaltimore Oriole by Salmon Brook7 viewsI've been seeing and hearing quite a few of these jaunty fellows lately and thought this one who surprised me by the brook should be shared.Ed Hodgson

bathingmallard.jpgBathing beauty7 viewsThis mallard's frenzied splashing with his wings became all the more dramatic as he created a blue accent in the golden reflections of late autumn trees around the pondEd Hodgson

bluebird116.jpgWinter Bluebird 20168 viewsLast month I spotted this fellow visiting our birdbath one morning. He was cooperative enough to pause in our maple tree as he finished his visit so I was able to capture a few images. Exposure was a bit of a challenge as he was strongly backlit and our sunroom windows made fill flash a bad option, but between what I could do with the camera ans a bit of post processing, I don't think this worked out too badly.Ed Hodgson

cantwait.jpgThey Can't Wait Either12 viewsA few days ago, I took this photo of hundreds of birds lined up at the edge of the open water on lower Congamond Lake to wait for spring to really arrive. I thought it captured an impatience we all share about now. It was an interesting melange - I spotted hooded and common mergansers in the crowd as well as the predominant canada geese and mallards.

cardinalmay.jpgCardinal - May morning mist10 viewsI spotted this handsome fellow while exploring along Salmon Brook at the park on a somewhat misty morning not too long ago. I like the soft background that resulted from the mist and limited depth of field.Ed Hodgson

courtingturkey.jpgGoin' Courting9 viewsOn my way over to visit my Mom at McLean the other day I spotted a flock of turkeys in the field off Barndoor Hills Road in Simsbury.
