Mandarin Ducks (Dawson Creek Park, Hillsboro, OR, 10/22/2016)

A pair of Mandarin Ducks is hanging out at the Wood Duck pond behind the Hillsboro library. The birds are best to see just before sunset, when the 100+ Wood Ducks fly in to roost.

Obsessed with birding, I started taking a pictures in '01 after a brief personalized intro by the incomparable David LaPuma. In July '09, I acquired a Canon EOS 50D with a 100-400mm IS lens to be able to shoot the fast-moving lbjs that were so difficult before. In Dec '14, I upgraded my body to a Canon 7D Mark II and immediately noticed a big improvement. Nevertheless, I'm first and foremost a birder, then a photographer.
