I just managed to get this fellow in mid-call (see the open beak). There were so many of these fellows and Canada Geese in this marsh and across the road in a (mowed) corn field that the sound from bird calls was amazing!

He was, Hanne! This is the time of year that they stake out their territories and their song is one of indicators of Spring. Have a listen:

The first song is what this little fellow was saying at the time I took his picture.

Right you are, Patti! One of their favourite places in which to nest. Thank you (and cuddles to the little one!).

Those yellow and red epaulettes, along with his unique call, are what make him so distinctive, Jacques! (The female looks so very different: she is a medium to dark brown and looks rather like a large sparrow.)

They love the old cattails! Nice set -- thank you!

He has really red wings!

Not so much of a walk as a drive to this place, stop the car, bop out and take shots...go to the next, etc. Just play time at the moment and trying to familiarize myself somewhat. Fun play time! ;-D

You had a good walk with your new toy!
