On a recent trip to Manitoba, we stopped at Oak Hammock marsh, just north of Winnipeg.
Although it was raining, I was able to capture these two beauties.

Very nice shots! Oak Hammond is such an awesome place - my friend lives pretty close to there, and they also do a lot of bird banding there - a great place for general diversity! :)

Thanks, guys , just wish the light was better. We spent two weeks in Manitoba,
and our trip to Oak Hammock was the only rainy day.
