    Canoncan and myself had a great day shooting and ended up with a nice variety of bird images to show for our effort. First stop was Humber Park and despite the clouds from a recent snow storm we did ok.

    As usual, Canoncan is seen sitting down on the jobÂ…again.

    Then it was off to Woodland Cemetery in Hamilton to catch a glimpse of some Eagles but this is all I came home with after sliding down a steep hill and falling off a tree and landing on my shoulder to protect the camera. The camera survived but I will be paying the price for a few days.

    While waiting for an Eagle to return I at least got a decent Swan flypast

    Then it was off to LaSalle Park for some late day waterfowl shots. Almost did not go but it turned out to be the highlight of the day.

    Great shots! :thumbup:

    I like the close ups, and the little baby especially. You guys are lucky back east to have those clear, bright winter days!

    Do you use slide or print film?

    Well where do I start. They are all so great. I love the incoming swans, the red headed duck and the snow goose. Great shots all!

    Incredible, you caught my favorite bird (if in fact those are buffleheads) we get them around my house in the winter and they are beautiful. Very impressive pics.
