When I moved to Canada from Europe I had no idea what to expect. Ok, I didn’t expect people with blue faces. Later I learned that they do get blue faces, usually in the second half of February. It was a few years ago I was introduced to shooting birds, with my camera. Again I didn’t know what to expect. While Europe is pretty rich in birds, I had never had any interest in them. After all, the cities I lived in were hardly a place where you can find birds. Unless you’re looking for pigeons or house sparrows.
Here in Canada I got the first real view of birds that didn’t look like sparrows (or did, but with a twist). The white ones were a real treat to shoot. The first one I saw was in the Zoo. It didn’t look too miserable, it just looked out of place.
