    Hi you'll,

    The Viera Wetlands are getting more active as the birds are returning from their nesting activities.
    the snowy egrets are back in force


    The Great Egret numbers are increasing

    Lots if green herons can be found

    there are lots of common morehens with chicks

    the raptors are hanging out

  2. Do you use portable lighting or some flash in your photo's. I love the photo's nice work. And good colors.

    Thanks Vince. I just got the SB-800 and the Better Beamer but they weren't used on these shots.

    Very nice work Harry. Patrick, Greg and I are going over to the dam this morning, but the shooting there just doesn't compare with Viera. I love the hawk. Wish I could get one of those.

    Wow, Harry! Great shots! That place really is starting to get active, and it would seem to still be rather early in the season. Guess I need to go check out some of the places around here and see if things are improving yet.

    I've seen some of the shots from your outing and they were great. That hawk is getting to be a real regular at the Wetlands. This is the third time I've run into him. He's even roosting in The Tree now. :biggrin:

    Thanks Don. The Wetlands slow down around late March through June because a lot of the birds are off mating and nesting in rookeries and the migratory birds have left. It starts picking up starting July when the nesting birds return and continues to get more active as the migratory birds start arriving.
