Brewers Blackbirds which are quite a numerous resident around farms and ponds in N Saanich gather here on a wire in a flock of hundreds.. Here are 7, shot just about sunset.
I must admit that I am unsure if this group of birds are Lessor Yellowlegs, but if not could someone please send me a note with an ID.
These images were shot well after sunset at a slow shutter speed and high ISO, but felt they are such lovely long legged creatures and worthy to post. They feed in shallow ponds on quite a variety of insect species. This is yet another bird that is migrating South to various places as far as South America. Birds are incredible!
