Rare bird alert • Black-legged Kittiwate • Smithville Lake
Lois and I arrived at Smithville Lake at 11am and finally found the Black-legged Kittiwate at 4:07pm floating in a huge raft of Ring-billed Gulls about 750 yards out there. Not very good for photographing but I managed some "documentary" ones.
I'm just an amateur that loves to capture the beauty around us. Nothing escapes me, be it bugs, animals, especially birds, landscapes, sunsets, infrared or macros, if it’s moving or not. After retiring from the Aerospace industry after 40 years I've been able to concentrate on birding and photographing them.
