Bird Watching after "The Storm"

Well-we survived Tropical Storm Leslie!!

Folks in this area were bracing for a repeat of Hurricane Igor of September of 2010, but thank goodness, it was not to be this time around.  Not to say that many parts of the province weren't hit hard.  In fact there was massive flooding on our west coast and the winds really took a toll on the eastern and Avalon portions of the island, especially in the capital city of St. John's.

Last evening. between my bike ride and my regular nightly visit with Mom, it was so beautiful outside I decided to take my camera and go for a little drive.  I was drawn out around the shore of the bay.  The light was so beautiful  and the water was literally like a mirror---quite a contrast to the day before.  I wished it could stay like it for another few hours---I was really in the mood to take some snaps!!  On nights like this, it is not hard to be reminded how lucky I am to live in a place like this.  Sometimes the beauty around me almost takes my breath away.  What do you think??


I also got a few shots of some seabirds.  These are called Greater Yellowlegs.  There are lots of 
different birds on this shore.  Here's a few shots of the yellowlegs.......

Hope you like these photos.
Have a great weekend!
