Different Birds and Deer

Finding wildlife to photograph involves a lot of driving and a lot of parking and waiting.  Sometimes the opportunities come quickly and sometimes it can take hours.  Here are some of the photos I was able to take during the past week.  The first is a flicker, briefly pausing long enough to take one photo...

 
Next is a swamp sparrow on a windy day...
 
 
I came across this newly fledged mourning dove resting on the side of the road...
 

A green heron landed in a pond side tree before moving to a muskrat lodge to begin searching for prey...



In the early morning light I was able to observe this "sand piper" type bird.  I can't positively identify it so I won't venture a guess...



 
This chipping sparrow is a frequent visitor to one of my "sit and wait" spots...
 

One of the nice things about patience is that sometimes it is rewarded by the sight of whitetail deer crossing a small creek in the early morning light...


 
I wish you the patience to see such sights.
