went out after work to Maplewood Flats last week and came across this American Robin.
the weather was cruddy and grey but the urge to bird is great in me and sometimes i can't help but head out scope in hand as soon as work is finished for the day.
with the winter sun, it's a small window of opportunity to get out before it gets too dark.
i was pushing the light a bit when i came across this handsome fella but i was able to get a few shots.
i posted this shot in a local birding forum and got zero response. i know the BG is spooky and it's not ideal lighting and maybe the perch isn't appealing enough but the bird is what it's about isn't it?
i like this shot.
