New Digs

Belted Kingfisher

First bird at the new office, taken with point and shoot as I walked to my car yesterday. A week of non-posting attributed to getting settled at a new office. A week after the move was postponed we were finally moved in this past Monday. Despite the lack of posts I have been getting out at lunch time to visit some locations that are now in my daily "backyard". Lower Church Lake is anywhere from 1-3 minutes by car, depending on lights - and as shown above I am within falling-over distance of the Big Dry Creek Trail system. This week I also explored a new location for myself, Ketner Reservoir, and have spent two days at Standley Lake, one buying my season pass, and one getting in a walk down to the lake.

My photographic efforts have struggled, but I have had some good sightings and will see if I can pull together a compilation post in the next couple of days.

  1. I think one of the most beautiful birds around is the Belted Kingfisher. I have several good shots of them, but do not have a great one. Still working on that.

    Good luck in your new digs and may the birds crap on your windows - that means they are coming by.
