A rainy Sunday


A wet wet Sunday, a bit annoying after a hard week when it was sunny outside most of the time but I was stuck inside...............

Still, there were a few birds about in the rain.


A flock of Crossbill was near Kamiiso. They were a bit flighty and only fed in someone's yard so I couldn't get any good pictures of them at eye level (even if it hadn't been so wet and dark).

I did quickly snap some pics close to the house in question though...........




One brought a pinecone a bit closer and started eating the seeds.............





But a bit tricky to get any nice shots against the leaden skies...............




Also at Kamiiso were Osprey, Kingfisher, various ducks including a pair of Shoveler and some Little Ringed Plover. At Onuma there were slso Shoveler and Osprey as well as Smew and Whte Tailed Eagle but by then the rain was too heavy for any photos. Hope the rain stops tomorrow............

    1. I'm surprised you don't see loads of them where you are in Canada?
