    Hey, nice shots, Pavel! I like the white bird photo the most. The way the water looks like it picks up the color of the trees in contrast to the white bird. Very cool!

    Cheers!

    Oh wow! Great Pics! And from your balconey. That's just too cool. The Canada Geese must be passing through for winter. What a handsome bird. The white bird is a great egret. You can tell them apart from the great white heron by their legs. Great egret - black legs; great white heron (rarer) - yellow legs. Or, like I do: the great white heron is color coordinated: yellow bill, yellow legs.
    Your egret looks posed to strike. They are so fast! I love the herons and have several pics of the great blue.
    Pavel, the trees changing are gorgeous! Something few and far between in the south. Thanks for sharing.

    Ah but basic black goes with everything does it not? LOL Thanks for the ID lesson, Tami. I'll have to try to remember that as I was indeed wondering if it was a heron or an egret.

    Oh, btw, the geese [aka feathered pooping machines] are here throughout the summer.

    Great pics Pavel, I used to love hearing the canada geese migrating overhead when we lived in MD. Then we got lots of resident geese and believe it or not they talked with a different accent and you could actually hear the difference if they were resident or migratory. Crazy isn't it.

    It's that time of the year! Nice shots of the birdies. I don't see many waterfowl around here unless I go to the coast. But the semi-annual migrations are well under way here too! Flocks of finches, sparrows, junkos, siskins, hummers, warblers and more. But they aren't very photogenic, and besides they move too fast. Thanks for the fall treat!
