Passing through northern California, I was attracted to the sea of Snow Geese. They are the resemblance of Canadian Geese in our area. It’s so fun to watch their large community gathering on the field, taking off, and marching in the air. Birds have no place to ‘go home’, but their habitat is much beautiful and peaceful than ours. As a single, they might not look as distinctive as other exotic birds. As a whole, their uniform movement is quite interesting.
This is not the first time I intended to communicate with the birds. I could not get a good shot of the hawks until recently. When this Red-tailed Hawk turned his head to acknowledge my greetings, I was thrilled.
First I saw the Hawk was harassing the Crow. Without having them exposed by the camera, I would never notice that it’s now the Hawk was running for life. In our real life, we have our turn to be Up and Down. Don’t lose heart. Keep up and stick to the goal.
Egret has that beautiful white feather. It looks, even more, appealing when it’s all fluffy in the cold weather. Birds instinctively know how to keep themselves warm. I, however, cannot figure out why he stood there on one foot. Maybe his foot was hidden inside the feather for heat.
Ever since I began to get some hawk shots, there are more seen and captured. I have to say this is my theory of ‘secret of desire’. When you desire hard and long, things will become to unfold for you.
Ibis has a unique curved beak and long legs. I have seen Egyptian Ibis in Asia and White Ibis in Central American, but this Glossy Ibis is new to me.
It was a shortstop and a brief bird walk. The findings are quite amazing. I only dropped a few here to share.
