SATURDAY CRITTERS -Birds at Oxford Island

These are a few more shots I took when we visited Oxford Island on the way to The Argory.  There is a Blackbird sunning himself, a Coot although you can hardly see him but I liked this shot of part of Lough Neagh and thought you  might also and finally Mallard ducks.  I am linking this post with SATURDAY CRITTERS.





 Thank you for visiting and also to all who leave comments.

  11. The blackbird shot is my favorite! He looks like a baby.They will fluff out and shake their wings when they want fed, too.

  12. That blackbird looks like it is enjoying itself. Noting like a bit of sunshine to brighten the day.

  18. Lough Neagh is the little red hut? Beautiful shot, that is what nature photography is all about in my book. Also love the sunning blackbird, it's a really unique shot.

  19. Dearest Margaret; As I've never seen the Blackbird, I would have taken the bird for a crow p:-)
    The reflections of the Mallard are wonderful, I wish I could have a chance.

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*
