Not Done With the Birds Walks

The area bords can be kind at times. This Mallard Duck decided to pose and show off it's massive breast. It looks like he is saying "Go on mister camera man, check this out". I saw a pair swimming on Fishcreek and couldn't resist a shot.
They both were showing fun reflections.
The Redwinged Blackbirds have returned into the area.
This one got joined by a friend and was none to happy.
These are some more birds of my area from my walks.

Hi Tom, Looks like you got some more great bird pictures. I especially like the red-winged blackbird. I saw one ONE time here--but haven't seen any since. We have plenty of crows around!!!

How are you???? Hope you are getting stronger and stronger every day.

Very nice shots. Loved the redwinged blackbirds. There should be a meme called bird watch (especially now in springtime).

A very proud fellow that mallard. The one with the head reflected in the water is really good. We have the red-winged Blackbirds here too. A lovely selection Tom.

I have a handful of red-wing blackbird photos and got them while going to and from the cemetery in my car. That's the only place I ever saw them. Then, yesterday, I heard one or two in the neighbor's yard, got my binoculars out and looked high and low but never saw them. I keep hoping to get some nice pictures like you got.

Great photos, Tom. They're all wonderful but I think the bee in the crocus are my favorites.
