Bald Eagle at Ellis Park, Cedar Rapids, IA.
Great Blue Heron
This Great Blue Heron was one of two that frequented Ellis Park in Cedar Rapids, IA in 2016.
White Egret in Flight
I followed this White Egret around for quite a while. This time he flew toward the morning sun, and his feathers cast some great shadows to capture high contrast detail. I love how their white wings pick up water reflections adding another point of interest.
Great Blue Heron Twofer
We saw this Great Blue Heron take his dive, and amazingly came up with two nearly identical fish.
This White Egret is scratching where it itches.
I like capturing the Great Egret just as it takes off. They take flight on short runs of 50m-100m, making for fun photo opportunities.

Cormorant sunning in an early morning blue sky. Ellis Park, Cedar Rapids, IA.
I have seen many blue herons striking this pose, tilting their head into the sun. For a unique pose, check out the one on this page standing "spread eagle" sunning himself.
Ring-billed Gull with swallowing a fish. Ellis Park, Cedar Rapids, IA.
I normally try to avoid backlit birds, but this one had some nice light effects, and I enjoyed the unique pose he had in the air.
