Bird Watching Around Our Neighborhood

      Last weekend, my husband and I took a walk around our neighborhood like always we do on weekends. He has been very busy to finish up his project this year, so we've stayed at home weekends mostly. Getting outside and walking around our neighborhood is very refreshing. :)

     While walking around our neighborhood, I found there was a beautiful great egret in a pond there.

     She was so tall and white. She looked like she was there in search of prey.

     There were also some female mallard ducks like always.

      These were always many kinds of birds sitting on the top of these very tall trees.

     Because the tree was very tall, it was very hard to see the birds. I watched birds through my camera with 50x optical zoom. It looked like something woodpecker or flicker.

     My walking outside is like bird watching rather than exercising because I love watching wild animals. :)

My camera I use for taking pictures of wild animals is Canon Power Shot SX50 HS.

    By the way, this is the video I recorded at San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary two years ago. There are always so many kinds of wild birds. I would like to go there again this month. :)
