2015-11-08: What I’ve seen this week

I’ve been on my computer far too much today, so I will keep this brief.  Unfortunately the most interesting thing I saw this week, two large flocks of bohemian waxwings, was when I didn’t have my camera with me… however, it was awesome to see and hopefully the next time they are passing through town, I will be ready!  I also saw a smaller group of pine grosbeaks, but they were at such a distance and it was so foggy, that the photos aren’t even worth editing. On a more positive note, my D610 has returned from the journey to the service centre, seemingly good as new, so I am a happy Jen.

With that, the few photos I’ve selected to share this week.  Enjoy, and have a great evening.

Even with a house in the background and the fog, this is still the best photo I have managed so far of a ruffled grouse!

I finally decided to get some food out for the birds, now that the daily highs are in the low single digits (celsius).  The first visitor I had was totally new to me, a grey jay.

A little acrobatic snacking.

The grey jay kindly tidying up some dropped seeds.  There was actually a pair of them, but only one fed at a time.
