|The Open River|
|Close Up of Open Water|
More areas in the river are continuing to open up.
|Near the Open Water|
Canada Geese arrive, but the RedPolls are still hanging on. It's sort of a mix of spring and winter.
If RedPolls are a winter visitor then the Robin is an early sign of summer.
The Gulls seem to be around all the time but move closer to the water as the ice melts.
Isn't he the perfect guy to say: " Have a good day!!"

Hi Gary, All these photos are brilliant,adorable birds and spectacular scenery!ReplyDelete
Very, very nice! Just love seeing the thaw and the birds enjoying it, too.ReplyDelete
These are great shots!!! I never tire of your redpolls (or crows and ravens). That male redpoll is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Your photos always bring peace. Love the redpoles brightness. Spring bird color is a blessing.ReplyDelete
Opening up but still in need of a major meltdown I see. :)ReplyDelete
I just love those RedPolls every time you post them. These shots have great clarity.
You might want to add, 'I dare you' to the crows greeting. They are so ominious I think.
It looks like it's the winner, it's the Redpolls.ReplyDelete
The Redpolls are such beauties. I like the one of the Robin in the tree and the Crow looks menacing. What a capture! Great to see y'all are thawing out.ReplyDelete
Ha I've been complaining that it's cold here (in the 50's) and you've got tons of snow on the ground!ReplyDelete
Nice to see open water. THe shot of the crow is just wonderful. I was waiting to hear the caw.
Wonderful shots as usual... Nice to see some small signs of spring.ReplyDelete
Still looks cold, but beautiful. The crow looks a bit scary. Beautiful shots!ReplyDelete
The Redpolls look stunning. It is strange to see so much snow still around too.ReplyDelete
It's so strange to see spring shots with snow, but I would love to walk there, even with the cold, because the place is gorgeous! Wonderful bird photos too.ReplyDelete
The crow tells indeed and I wouldn't dare otherwise :)ReplyDelete
Hope you too hade a wonderful day. Must have been with so many wonderful photos!
Glad you enjoyed it Lois.ReplyDelete
Thanks Texwisgirl for the kind words.ReplyDelete

We're getting there though Jen.ReplyDelete
He is sure something isn't he Guy.ReplyDelete
It's going away though Julian.ReplyDelete
You would enjoy the area JM.ReplyDelete
I just spent a very enjoyable time getting caught up on your posts. Loved the waxwings, as we don't get them around here. And, that crow! What a fine fellow he is. I don't have much luck getting closeups of the crows around here. One flicker of movement, and they're gone.ReplyDelete
The Bomenians are food loyal so you may get them.ReplyDelete

Beautiful birds Gary!! One blogger I read (Lady Fi) called this season "springter'...the time when winter and spring compete to see which will rule" I hope spring wins at your house! But your in-between season pictures are beautiful in the meantime. That crow really looks as if he is ready to speak. (I've heard that they can be trained to do so; I'm sure they're smart enough).ReplyDelete
The crow looks like a burly tough guy. :)ReplyDelete
What a portfolio of beautiful bird photography. I have never seen the redpoll before. Ravishing.ReplyDelete
