    I went down to Humber Bay Park today for the first time and found a few birds. I was hoping to see some birds of prey but didn't. It seems my timing is off with these kinds of birds, but i'll get them yet!

    A male Long-tailed Duck in winter plumage.

    Here's a Bufflehead, he was a long way out so excuse the quality.

    Here's a gull in flight

    And a couple of shots of Mute Swans.

    Wonderfully clear shots, JOAT! I enjoy watching the longtails, but they're pretty skittish whenever I raise my camera. Am going to have to watch for the Bufflehead, as I love the colours of their plumage. The last swan shot is just perfect, IMHO - love the curve of its neck, the way it's looking at you, the way it's in 'warrior mode', and you got a clear shot of its eye. Bravo.
