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.

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).
