Duck, Duck, Goose

Since starting bird photography in earnest when the world was in lock down, I’ve developed a new photography skill set. Let me rephrase that, I am continuously working on improving my bird photography skills. That’s a bit more accurate…

The app E-bird is my best friend for bird photography. I have progressed from barely noticing birds (let alone what species) to being able to tell some just from their call. That’s mostly for a Bluejay or an Osprey but let’s just say I’ve gotten better at being able to identify birds without pulling out the app.

Mentioning the app, it has a cool feature where if you hear the bird but can’t see it, you let the phone listen and providing there isn’t a lot of other noise around, it will identify the bird for you. I’ve also learned that the color of a bird changes depending on not just being male or female but also if they are mature or juvenile and if it’s breeding season or not.

Nature is so amazing.

    I’ve never heard of the Greylag geese. The pintails sometimes are as common here as mallards, but it seems seasonal. We’re still waiting for some of our migrants to show up.

    Great pictures!
    I just saw Tundra swans on our lake here in Pennsylvania… They were far out into the lake. Hopefully more will come… Watching the migrating birds, ducks and geese etc. are so fun at this time of year!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Nice captures Teri. That app sounds pretty cool.
