There are lot's of trees in the park, the hiking trail is perfect for a hot summer day, because it is cool in the park and it is mostly shade. But not the best conditions to take a picture. XD I know that from how most of my pictures were really dark.
这个公园里有很多树,这条山路做好是大夏天爬了因为公园里很凉快和都是树荫。可是拍照没那么好。XD 我很多照片拍出来是黑的。

The Snowy Egret (Egretta thula)

"The Snowy Egret (Egretta thula) is a small white heron. It is the American counterpart to the very similar Old World Little Egret, which has established a foothold in the Bahamas. Adults are typically 61 centimetres (24 in) long and weigh 375 grams (13.2 oz) They have a slim black bill and long black legs with yellow feet. The area of the upper bill, in front of the eyes, is yellow but turns red during the breeding season, when the adults also gain recurved plumes on the back, making for a "shaggy" effect. The juvenile looks similar to the adult, but the base of the bill is paler, and a green or yellow line runs down the back of the legs. Their breeding habitat is large inland and coastal wetlands from the lower Great Lakes and southwestern United States to South America. The breeding range in eastern North America extends along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts from Maine to Texas..."

Surprisingly, it caught several fishes!


There is an island in the middle of the lake. I think this is where most of the birds and ducks sleep at night at this park.

These pictures were taken at Fremont Central Park located in Fremont, CA, USA. The lake is called Lake Elizabeth.

Geese and Ducks 鹅和鸭

Canadian Geese (Branta canadensis) and Mallard Ducks (Anas platyrhynchos) are part of the habitat around Bay Area, CA, USA.
加拿大鹅和绿头鸭是在弯曲这边两种动物。

Canadian Geese: a wild goose belonging to the genus Branta, which is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, having a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brownish-gray body. It is often called the Canadian Goose, but that name is not the ornithological standard, or the most common name.

Canadian Geese Family

I'm guessing this is a kind of geese because of it's bill shape. If anyone know what this is, please tell me!
我觉得这个也是一种鹅。它的嘴巴长得像鹅嘴巴。要是你知道这是什么的话,请你告诉我!
Update 9-7-2012: After years, I figured out the name. It's the Muscovy Duck (Cairina moschata)


The Mallard, or Wild duck (Anas platyrhynchos), probably the best-known and most recognizable of all ducks, is a dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and sub-tropical America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand (where it is currently the most common duck species), and Australia.

Mallard Ducks 绿头鸭:

I'm guessing this white duck is also a mallard duck. Not sure. If I'm wrong, please correct me.
我觉得这个也是一种绿头鸭。要是我错了的话,请你告诉我。

Pictures on today's pose was taken a Fremont Central Park located in Fremont, California, USA.

Barn Swallows and the Red-Winged Blackbird

Today's pictures will be pictures of barn swallows (Hirundo rustica) and the red-winged blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus).
今天的照片是一种燕子 (Hirundo rustica) 和红翅膀的黑鸟 (Agelaius phoeniceus)。

这些照片是在 Fremont Central Park 在 Fremont, 加州,美国拍的。

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing here. Best bird photos here.

The Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) is a passerine bird of the family Icteridae found in most of North and much of Central America. It breeds from Alaska and Newfoundland south to Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico, and Guatemala, with isolated populations in western El Salvador, northwestern Honduras, and northwestern Costa Rica. It may winter as far north as Pennsylvania and British Columbia, but northern populations are generally migratory, moving south to Mexico and the southern United States. The Red-winged Blackbird is sexually dimorphic; the male is all black with a red shoulder and yellow wing bar, while the female is a nondescript dark brown. Seeds and insects make up the bulk of the Red-winged Blackbird's diet.

~ Wikipedia



The Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. A distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings, it is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In Anglophone Europe it is just called the Swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow" rather than a "martin".

There are six subspecies of Barn Swallow, which breed across the Northern Hemisphere. Four are strongly migratory, and their wintering grounds cover much of the Southern Hemisphere as far south as central Argentina, the Cape Province of South Africa, and northern Australia. Its huge range means that the Barn Swallow is not endangered, although there may be local population declines due to specific threats, such as the construction of an international airport near Durban.

The Barn Swallow is a bird of open country which normally uses man-made structures to breed and consequently has spread with human expansion. It builds a cup nest from mud pellets in barns or similar structures and feeds on insects caught in flight. This species lives in close association with humans, and its insect-eating habits mean that it is tolerated by man; this acceptance was reinforced in the past by superstitions regarding the bird and its nest. There are frequent cultural references to the Barn Swallow in literary and religious works due to both its living in close proximity to humans and its conspicuous annual migration. The Barn Swallow is the national bird of Estonia.

House Sparrow

The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a species of passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It is also known by the alternative vernacular names English Sparrow, Indian Sparrow, and Spatzie or Spotsie. It occurs naturally in most of Europe, the Mediterranean region, and much of Asia. It has also been intentionally or accidentally introduced to many parts of the world, making it the most widely distributed wild bird. It is strongly associated with human habitations, but it is not the only sparrow species found near houses. It is a chunky little bird, with feathers mostly different shades of brown and grey.

~ Wikipedia

The pictures you see here are what I suspect are house sparrows. If I'm wrong, please correct me. These pictures were taken at Fremont Central Park in Fremont, CA, USA

Where the killdear is standing, usually you can see water. The reason you see land in this picture is because workers have drained part of the lake to build a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transportation something like a lightrail) extension.

The next few images, will be a bit blurry because I went to the park a bit late that day, there wasn't enough lighting for me to take clear pictures. My camcorder doesn't have a really good camera flash either. Photoshop was able to fix most of the colors though. But please enjoy!
