This blog is a result of the many hours spent on watching
nature. The photos here were taken by my husband, Piotr, and me during our trips.

Looking for spring

Today Piotr and I decided to check what's going on at the ponds near Opole. It's generally a great place to watch the nature, but still there is not as much to see as usually. Ponds are frozen so no sign of ducks or swans. There was a heron somewhere, actually there were heron's tracks on the ice, but we didn't spot heron itself.  As a special treat I was able to take photo of this beautiful buzzard and finally came across Great Grey Shrike posing as a model

You nearly found spring! :) You found critter tracks too! Wonderful!

Spring is on its way but not here yet in my part of Canada either. Soon!

Beautiful pictures, I think the animals and people are anxious for Spring time.
Here I used to see a heron in the park, near my place, but unfortunately now he disappeared. :(
I hope he is fine!
Have a nice week,

The best of the lot is Great Grey Shrike, that is my thoughts.

You know a lot more about birds than I do, but in these parts I'd call that buzzard a hawk of some kind. Our buzzards are really ugly!

Terrific photos, though. I love that first one with the tracks in the snow!

The little bird was definitely posing for you! Love the bird footprints on the snow shot.
