Along side all of these different birds are almost as many spectators and photographers. Is it any wonder when you look at this great little male Tufted Duck?
On this particular day, like most, the Rock Doves line off on the back of benches, on the bridge railing or even on my car door.
It is a never-ending show at Quidi Vidi and it is no surprise that many people make this spot a daily destination to keep city life in balance with the human need to experience the wonder of nature. For many there really is no greater distraction.

I wonder if the day will hold any surprises. I will take my scope to give it a go. It takes practice to "scope" out birds. I'll let you know how it works out.

Please do check out Dave's blog for the real info on this bird.
A local resident was walking her dog and looked at me with curiosity as I peered into the backyards with my binoculars. I had to explain that I was looking for unusual birds and that I had heard that there may be a rare bird in the area. She guided me toward where she had seen others looking at a grassy area the day before. I was off to the site very quickly.

It is really awesome to witness the power of nature up close and personal.

Right away he suggested that I experiment with the Compensation. Well, I paused for a moment with ISO, White Balance, F-Stop and Shutter Speed racing through my head. I wondered if Compensation was a synonym for one of these settings.
