Welcome! Thanks For Visiting - Come See What I've Seen...

I am a retired educator from St. Charles, Missouri. I enjoy my kitty, birding, nature, travel, reading, and photography. I particularly enjoy reading Nordic Noir, International cozy mysteries and crime thrillers. I am also a big fan of British/Nordic and other foreign streaming TV. Visiting museums, and morning coffee are also favorites. Thanks for stopping by.

Gear: I am a point and shoot nature photographer. I use a Nikon Coolpix P950, a superzoom/bridge camera. I also have a Nikon A1000 pocket camera. I have recently acquired a Canon EOS R7 mirrorless camera - a new photo adventure! For post-processing: Luminar Neo, and FastStone Image Viewer for organizing.

This was a solitary nonbreeding adult.
On the water they dip their pouched bills to scoop up fish, or tip-up like an oversized dabbling duck.
