When I visited in the winter, http://www.photography.ca/Forums/architecture-man-made-cities-buildings-roads-objects-abstracts/16774-ralph-klein-park.html?highlight= this City of Calgary park was pretty much frozen over. Now it's a huge wetland with large marsh areas and numerous birds. I wished I could have recorded the bird calls. However, the birds are extremely shy of humans, and even with a 400 mm lens, I could not get many shots. I'll have to learn bird calls next, and/or how to sit in a bird blind.

I especially like the last 2. I guess you've cropped shot 2 as much as you can? I think the bird in the brown grass is cool and if you could crop out the green would be perfect and make the subject a bit larger in the frame.
