This male Green-winged Teal has been at San Pedro's Averill Park for over a year now, seemingly content to hang-out with the Mallards and feral Geese. This photo was taken in late February 2012.
Barred Owl / Chouette rayée  Strix varia  Owl Woods, Amherst Island, Ontario  1 November 2008    Barred owls are not uncommon in the Ottawa area, though they can be very difficult to find sometimes.  During the winter of '07/'08, a barred owl took up residence on a stretch of rural road near a Canadian Forces firing range, much to the delight of area birders and photographers.  Try as I might, however, I was unsuccessful at locating that particular owl, even though I was told that "I couldn't miss it."    So when I came across this barred owl, a lifer for me (#229), I was thrilled to finally meet my highly sought-after quarry face to face.
Always love this time of year when our feathered friends from up north comes to visit here in Florida. This Male Northern Pintail was doing some preening for me showing of his beautiful plumage.  This was my first day out with the new 7D mk2 and i was very happy with it's performance. Canon 7D mkII w 500mm + 1.4x   1/600 f9 iso 800 www.wklein.smugmug.com

This is a photograph of a morph Reddish Egret.  Found this fellow fishing in a lagoon.  After approaching him slowly was able to photograph him trying to catch breakfast.  Was lucky enough to capture him right when he was trying to position a caught minnow before swallowing it (Fort DeSota 4/06).
