It's been awhile since I've posted anything from my walks at the reservoir. The reason is that it's been awhile since I've walked at the reservoir. I was having knee problems last year and so never even purchased a pass there. This year, though, my knee is much better, and I've gone for a couple of walks this week. Spring is a fun time to go because there are usually interesting things to photograph. This spring is no exception.
I took my Canon SX20 on my first walk, but I was disappointed in the photos I captured. So I took our camcorder on my second walk. Today's images are from the camcorder. They're not all that sharp, but they were the best I was able to get. I'm not good on identification, but I believe these first three images are of Horned Grebes.
These next images are of some variety of Mergansers.
These are not in shallow water; they like to sometimes propel themselves above the surface.
This looks like some photos I found online of a male Red-Breasted Merganser.
And, to wrap up today's post, a couple of very short videos of these birds:
