So I finally spent some time and stacked and banged on my Andromeda (M31) shots from that night. I managed to pull this out of almost 38 minutes worth of shots but still am not all that pleased with the color so something went wrong. I tried reprocessing a few times but was never pleased:

113x20s
ISO 2500
F/3.5
K-3

It's been along time since I was in the blind. A roll call of who was there. Currently female evening grosbeaks are out there, and I saw a Stoat wander by, but no images.

Well, this morning I set myself a challenge. To photograph all the Tawny Frogmouths I knew of or had heard of in Braeside Park. I failed There should have been 16 Adults (or more if I was lucky) but I could only find 11 and some of those I couldn't find I had seen within the last few days.

All crops except 1, K3 DA*300 no TC.

It's that first image that is really special. Hove taken & seen many images of pelicans, but never one quite like that. It's an eye-stopper and stirs the brain to sort it out.

Wedge-tailed Eagle (Aquila audax) making a low pass over our place. So much so that I failed to get the whole of its 2 metre+ wingspan in the frame in the second shot. KP + DA 55-300 PLM at 300mm.

Great bird to have on your yard list Des!

Snow Buntings must be among the toughest birds. They nest in the high Arctic and seem to find enough to eat on bare ground and rocks.
Usually you just see flocks moving in the distance, showing a lot of white - I was fortunate that this group of 4 or 5 came relatively close.

Lucky you. They are always so skittish and difficult to approach for a close shot.
