Just as i promised i got out birding today ! It was a gorgeous day ! The birds were singing and the sun was out shining ! It actually felt like spring !
As soon as i arrived at mundy pond i herd my first Song sparrow of the year singing at the top of a tree !
I was surprised to see a large flock of green wing and common teal in the little side pond, they were very skittish and did not want their photo taken so all i got was this in flight shot.
When i took this shot i was thinking i would only use it for a reccord shot but i love the green in the wings ! After a good start at mundy pond i headed to QV lake where there was nothing....
The gulls that were hanging out by where the river flows out all winter now are flying all around the lake and the ducks are swimming freely now that the ice has melted i guess i have to wait until next winter for the action to pick up again !
I arrived at what i believe is Pier 17 (The Bubble) I was surprised to see the gate open to the area that is usually closed off, nevertheless i headed in !The gulls were very actively feeding and flying all around.My main reason for going there was to get some more shots of the Black Headed Gulls that are looking very sharp with their bold black heads !
I am blocked with work over the weekend and next week so i doubt i will be getting out, but if i do the blog will be surely updated :)
Enjoy spring, Newfoundland might have more winter to come !
