Lately I've been loving all the wildlife returning to our area. It's a wonderful excuse for me to get my camera out and capture some of what's going on. Last year I participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. I reported on a sighting of Common Mergansers that we spotted at a local lake. A member from the lab contacted me and told me that this was an unusually high number of Mergansers for that area, for this time of year. He asked if I could provide photos of the birds along with my submission.
This year the birds were back, so I was sure to photograph all that I could!
