Birding has been awesome lately so here are a few more recent shots.

Photographing winter waterfowl is always fun too, and I have spent some time doing that recently in many spots including Stanley Park.

Yesterday (December 13 2014) I birded around Delta with highlights being two Swamp Sparrows at Reifel and an Eared Grebe at White Rock. Both of these were BC Lifers! The Swamps Sparrows were hard to photograph but I managed some shots, the Eared Grebe was about 600 metres away so to far but still neat to see, and it is always rewarding to self-find a bird like that!

Here is a Swamp Sparrow shot:

Here is another shot from yesterday, a Long-billed Curlew. This long staying bird comes every winter and is always lots of fun to photograph! The bird was a bit distant yesterday but the light was too good to resist!
