Supersonic Man

stuff I was supposed to post two months ago

So yeah, I got three new species photographed, and then I never posted them.  Now that my new job is up to full speed, I rarely find time or energy anymore for either taking new pictures or sharing old ones.  I finally took some new ones, and then came here and discovered I’d never shared the previous ones.

Anyway, the new species.  None of them are particularly rare or exciting for most of you, I suppose.  First up, the canvasback.

Next up, and rather more interesting, a pair of green-winged teals.  (This is not a shot that I got that day, but a better one that I got more recently in the same spot.)

Thirdly, the tree swallow.  On that day I got one in flight:

and later I got a closer view of one perched on a wire.

Lastly, a bird which up to that day was probably the record-holder for how many times I managed to see it live, without ever getting a picture of it.  The white-tailed kite — famous for hovering like a giant hummingbird over rodent fields.
