Birds, Birds and More Birds

Roy Ramsay and I got up extra early to catch the sunrise at Humber Bay Park in Toronto. Sunrise was a bit of a bust since clouds decided to roll in and obscure the view. We were not to be deterred and waited it out getting some good predawn shots in the hopes the sun would at least peak through. No go on the sun so that meant food – second breakfast here we come. That’s when things got good.

After filling our tummies we headed back into the park to wander and see what we could see. We lucked out big time. Everywhere we turned we found birds. And I mean everywhere. We found Mallards…

Not cool enough? How about Barn Swallows?

I can see you’re particular. Okay, okay I get it you’re¬†looking for something a little more exotic. A Red-breasted Merganser perhaps?

I’d say that’s pretty exotic, no? I mean really did you even know these hung out here in Ontario? Needless to say it was a pretty amazing morning – for birds not sunrises. I like when I get big surprises like this.
