I met some new friends...

So we've been away from home for a few days...

...but I met quite a few new friends!

I believe this is an immature Herring Gull.

I'm pretty sure this is a female Boat-tailed Grackle...

...and this is a male Boat-tailed Grackle.

I think this might actually be another, younger, Herring Gull. (Note that there's even more brown..)

I'm not sure what this cute l'il guy is...some Sandpiper-like-thing?

I'm pretty sure this is a Laughing Gull...either winter coloration or immature.

And this guy...a Brown Pelican. (More on him later...)


    I like these new friends. I see birds around my home, but have a hard time getting a picture so that I can find out what they are. How do you do that?!


    Oh I lucked out with these guys! They were all so tame. The first seagull picture in the post was taken from only about 2 feet away...

    For your backyard birds, I recommend a tripod, a telephoto lens, and a lot of patience (be quiet!) about 25 feet away from a bird feeder..I've had luck doing that.
