Water Fowl - learning my camera

I've had a DSLR Nikon D90 camera now for several years and thought it was time I learned more about it and the settings.  So I have been reading, trying different settings and practicing.  A lot of trial and error for sure!  Before this I put the camera on sports mode and used like a point and shoot camera without touching settings but a few now and then.  Below are my most recent 'learning shots' taken at a nearby cove, I hope you enjoy them.
Tree Swallow
Great Blue Heron (I think!)
Heron and a couple Male mallards

Female and Male Ring Neck Ducks

And off they go!

Take time for yourself and enjoy!
