It was a sunny and chilly morning (1 degree Celsius) for a walk with my friend Alex. He just started birding and photography. We walked for four (4) hours and over 10000 steps looking for interesting subjects to shoot.
We started by dawn’s early light.
I used the new Nikon d850 with the Sigma 150-600c. What can I say. The d850 is a beast of a camera. The details in each photo are exquisite.
Right from the start, American Robins were fly around look for breakfast.
Lots of Black-capped Chickadees.
We found a handful of Bluejays looking for food.
We spotted a pair of Mourning Doves catching some rays.
A male Northern Cardinal stopped by.
A few White-throated Sparrows were foraging.
While snapping a photo of a chickadee, a White-breasted Nuthatch stopped in front of us.
We found a dozen Cedar Waxwings on the sunny side of the path.
On the dark side of the path were some Dark-eyed Juncos
and American Goldfinches.
Nobody home! we found a swallows nest.
Among a flock of American Robins we found an Eastern Bluebird (f).
We spotted our first American Tree Sparrow for the season.
A few Hairy Woodpeckers here and there.
Lots of Downy Woodpeckers
Lots of Red Squirrels running around. We spotted one getting ready for winter.
A Grey Squirrel scurrying about.
At the farm, a horse grazing.
You looking a me? A staring contest
The scenery was beautiful.
That all for today’s walk.
Est numquam etiam nuper committitur Birding.
