Two Canada Geese were spotted feeding and staying guard in Terra Nova Rural Park, and since the guard goose was standing still, I decided to play with the teleconverter again by holding the lens in one hand and the camera in another. It's hard work since both hands are slightly shaky, leading to some fuzzy photos. Can't wait until I have the adapter to join the two together. Nevertheless, I am quite pleased with the results.
I finally had the chance today to photograph and observe Barn Swallows (Hirundo rustica) today. Usually, they are either in fast flight or there are cars on the roadside preventing me from taking photos, but not today.
Barn Swallows are blue-black swallow with a tan belly and a deeply forked tail. They build cup-shaped mud nest under eaves, structures, and even the entrance of caves or mineshafts.
While heading home, I saw one Bald Eagle just beside its nest. Soon after, another adult inside the nest flew out and landed next to the other one. Then they were just looking at the golfers undernath them shouting and hitting golf balls.
