For last couple days, there has been a bar-headed goose (Anser indicus) in Helsinki, yesterday I saw it among barnacle geese (Branta leucopsis) in Arabianranta.

That's a great shot, Robert - perfectly timed with the tips of the toes just about to clear the water, and what a great capture with the bird's own shadow on its wing.

Thanks Joe. I did not realize that was a shadow on his wing. Guess that I am a bit dim.

Been a tad slow on my side for birding lately, been out shooting but the variety has been down in my usual spots. Can't go past them, but really how many "generic" duck/whatever shots can one birder handle.

Js5. Good shot. Those blades of grass in the foreground keep it from being exquisite but still good nonetheless. Tfs

I agree with Johan's statement, "How many generic bird shots can one man take?" I suppose it is different when looking at another person's photos as I thought they were all great.    Below are three generic local shots.

Everglades Snail Kite.

A99, 70-400 G, 1/2500, F7.1, 360mm.

Purple Gallinule regaining balance.

Same as above. 1/2000, F5.6, 210mm.

Wood Stork nestling asking for food. Most years they are finishing up their nesting by this time but we had a cold snap with heavy rain a couple months ago and many of the young died. Lots of the Sood Storks started over.
