I love the Boxley Pond !! …….. but it sure needs work. Went back today, a week later and did not see any more Mergansers but saw a few pairs of beautiful Wood Ducks (male pictured). It reached near 50 today and finally the ice is gone !

Thanks for watching my BLOG !

 

Today, Christmas Eve day, I drove by the Boxley Mill Pond and saw a pair of Wood Ducks, and was only able to photograph the male using a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 300L IS f/2.8 Lens with a 1.4 TC yielding 420mm on the 7D’s crop sensor or 672mm of magnification on this gloomy day. They represent to color of the holiday season to me – so colorful !!!

I was walking by the Boxley Pond yesterday, when I spotted a larger yellow-green bird on a clump of button Bushes in the center of the mill pond. Upon closer inspection, there was a young Oriole (not sure if it was an Orchard or Northern Oriole, but I believe Northern Oriole). He was really working each and every button for nectar. I watched from about 75 yards  distance and took a dozen photos at long range. I used my Canon 50D with a Canon 400 f/5.6 L lens, my go to combination for hiking-photography for wildlife:
