Excellent! Your birds are more friendly than ours out west. Yours don't mind you being so close.

Wonderful shots of the Eiders, Steve. I have Eiders on my post too, but I like your shots much better.

These are awesome shots.

The shape of his head and beak is awesome, but his colouring is pretty mixed up. I am guessing that next winter he will get his feathers painted right!
