Oine Siskins and Ruddy Duck

Friday, I took a drive through CJ Brown, and encountered a flock of about 20 Pine Siskins. Lighting wasn’t optimal, but you can get the idea.

This morning, David & I headed on our usual route, and while driving through Old Reid, we saw this Ruddy Duck. I was driving, so David shot from the passenger window and did a good job of getting the fall foliage reflected in the pond.

White Pelican

Saturday evening, David & I took a drive through Buck Creek State Park, and at the CJ Brown beach, we saw an American White Pelican. It was too far out for any photographs.
Sunday morning, David drove by the beach area on his way to the fairgrounds, and called to let me know that the pelican was on the beach at a fairly accessible location. I headed out, and was able to get a few shots before it headed out.

Over at Old Reid Park, I watched the Osprey fish and sun, and was able to catch a few shots as it flew by.
