Commonwealth Lake

This is a great park for wintering waterfowl. It's also a great place to walk Maggie. I don't usually take my camera because it's hard to juggle with a dog lunging at ducks.








Kinglets were having a party in this tree:::


I *love* nature. This Golden-crowned Kinglet has a crown just like the remaining leaves.


Back at home:::

    1. Robin, o Robin...when you do finally see a Kingfisher then they will suddenly be everywhere you go. Savor this time, for it will never come again...or just stomp your feet and throw a tantrum until you find one...that might work too.

  2. Ring-necked Ducks are hard to beat. I love them because they are a symphony of black, white and gray with just a dash of a yellow eye. And they are just so perky and alert. Yeah, because they might suddenly be lunch for a Peregrine...

  3. Awesome photos ! I have been able to train my Miggs to sit and stay still so I can take her on photo shoots with me . I love having her along she keeps me company in the woods and I think she thinks every time she sits I am photographing her as she does love the camera , that's a plus lol . Have a great day !
