Violet green Swallow, Flowers and more Day five

Today was another rainy day but again we enjoyed it. The scenic tour was 7 hours long but well worth it. Saw many elk, deer and more on the road. Highlight were ospreys and 3 bald eagles (Yahoo), kestrels and red tails high in the sky.
Erle and I started the day taking a stroll by the water and there on the boat was the swallow. I took a photo and then realized it was a violet-green. Wow.

Violet-green swallow - oh yes to start the day with a lifer

Pair of Cedar Waxwing. The male was feeding the female

  1. Very nice collection of birds.. I really like the Cedar Waxwing shot. I got a few shots of some of these today on my walk which I'll be uploading to my blog tonight.
