"Something New"

The theme this week is "Something New" by me.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Mondays and voting begins after that. 

This week I thought I'd show some bird captures from last year. This is a hawk that came down to the lake for a quick bath. I was docking the boat but respected his space.
He would dip his wings in the water and splash around a bit.
I tried to get him as he took off but his wings were a little too fast.
Here are a group of geese headed into a culvert.
This is a Flight of Cormorants, that is what a group of Cormorants are called - a Flight. They were just taking to the air.
See what the others show on my side bar.

That's a special event! I managed a video of my owl bathing last year. They are back this year, and I am excited!!!!

I have seen small birds taking a bath but never a hawk. Great capture!
