Look who’s been posing like a model, at our local ponds lately, Wood Ducks, which are uncommon in Southern California. I need to go back and …An Uncommon Fellow~
Take a look at Cindy’s Knoke’s photos of this wood duck. He is a very handsome boy! 🙂
“I’m watching you!” This Night Heron spent some time watching me intently, and then went back, to catching crabs! He caught a few, and then hopped …Mind your Mother~
A beautiful heron from Cindy Knoke. I hope you take a look through her wonderful wildlife photography posts. They are stunning!
I’m a bit late with this today but really, it’s never too late for a little harmless foolery. 😀
Here are some lovely photos of birds to get you off to a good start for your week.
Have a good week. 🙂

Here’s a great photo from 2019. Entitled “He’s right behind me, isn’t he?” it was taken by Anthony N Petrovitch.
And I love this photo from Vlado Pirsa called “Family Disagreement.”
We can all imagine that conversation.
And this head scratcher from Co Grift.

Although these photos are humorous, they are also meant to bring attention to wildlife and their habitat destruction.
Happy mid-week. 🙂
In spite of the fact that 2020 wasn’t much liked, I was able to take a few decent photos. Some were more popular than others, and here are some of those, again. I didn’t necessarily take these photos in this order or during those months; they just match better. 🙂
Here are the first six of your 2020 favourites.
Happy Monday; happy week. 🙂
Entitled Watching You Watching Them, this photographer was gifted with an example of the bird he was studying right outside his cabin window.
The Cordilleran flycatcher is declining across western North America as the changing climate causes shrinkage of the riparian habitats (i.e. river and other freshwater corridors) along its migratory routes and on its wintering grounds in Mexico. In Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front, it typically nests in crevices and on canyon shelves. But one pair picked this remote research cabin instead, perhaps to avoid predation. The nest was built on the head of a window frame by the female. Both parents were feeding the nestlings, flying out to snatch insects in mid-air or hovering to pick them off leaves.
So as not to disturb the birds or attract predators to the nest, Alex Badyaev hid his camera behind a large piece of bark on an ancient spruce tree leaning against the cabin. He directed a flash toward the trunk, so the scene would be illuminated by reflection, and operated the setup remotely from the cabin. He captured his shot as the female paused to check on her four nestlings. Behind her—the cabin serving as a conveniently spacious blind—the biologist recorded his observations.
Happy Friday, everyone. 🙂
This poor little guy was wind-blown into the house a couple of evenings ago.
He seemed to bounce and then landed on the roof of my truck. He initially didn’t look very well but was moving about.
I kept an eye on him and about 20 minutes later, he flew away. I was quite concerned about him because ravens would consider him to be a tasty snack. They are huge, aggressive, and smart.
Happily, he was able to recover before the ravens realised he was there.
A win for the ptarmigans. Maybe, a covid-mitigating win for all of us is coming soon.
Happy week. 🙂
I hope your day …
… is ducky. 🙂
