Candid Closeup: Don't wait for perfect weather to get the perfect bird photo

Tuesday, March 29th 2022, 3:00 pm - Candid Closeup is a weekly segment that features Canadians from coast to coast who love to share their weather. In this episode, The Weather Network's Kim MacDonald had the opportunity to speak with David Reid about the birds he has encountered on Lake Ontario.

Capturing the perfect bird photo takes time, patience, and a lot of luck.

Photographer David Reid loves nothing more than to take his canoe out on Lake Ontario, breathe in some fresh air, calm his mind, and hopefully find a bird nestled in the reeds. It's really a game of chance but going out often, to places people don't normally go, is the key.

He also firmly believes that the weather shouldn't stop you from getting a really great shot. Many of our feathered friends aren't afraid of cold and snow, and neither should you be.

In this episode of Candid Closeup, David Reid tells Kim MacDonald that he is not a birder per se but rather a bird photographer. He relies on the birder community to help him find and identify the quirky creatures he's grown to love.
