Black-crowned Night-Haron

The day’s sweat-equity was finished at the condo, so I decided to take a walk down to the marina to see what was happening. The sun was going down and I found a juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron.

Forgotten Photo Friday, Osprey in Ipswich

I took this photo on April 27th 2013. These are the colors as the sun was rising over the salt marsh. The Osprey have elected not to use the platform in the front yard again this year.

Yellow-crowned Night-Heron

It is not every day that I bump into a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron. On this day, I had two sightings.

Great Egret

One of the fun things about the Egrets in Clearwater, Florida is that they do not have much fear of humans. I quite often see them walking amongst the fishermen on the docs watching for some unguarded bait. But nevertheless, it is fun to photograph them.

Back from Clearwater

I just got back from Clearwater with lots of new photos. I counted about 52 bird species around the condo. Not bad. These two I took from our balcony that overlooks Clearwater Harbor. But it is getting late and I have to go to work in the morning. This is not the time to get lost in the dark room.

Glossy Ibis

This is as close as I have ever been to a Glossy Ibis. I’ve had very good luck with the White Ibis in Florida. This one was feeding in a field in Ipswich Massachusetts. I see them flying through the front yard in the summertime, but they are so swift that by the time I get the camera up to my face…well, you know the story.

I have to say that I’m impressed with a bird that can make a living by shoving a long pair of tongs into the ground and blindly come up with someting edible.

Spring is here

The male American Goldfinches are getting ready for the breading season. This male is on an old seed head in the flower garden. The landlord leaves the seed heads until spring.

Cattle Egret

These birds get around. It was originally an Old World Species, but as far as we know, it showed up in South America in 1877 and has expanded up through many parts of North America.

Snowy Plover

Wow. I absolutely forgot that I had a Snowy Plover image. This was shot somewhere along the east shore of the Salton Sea. Happy Friday!

American White Pelican

Sometimes I don’t know what to shoot. In this case, I have three American White Pelicans, three Ring-billed Gulls, two Willets and a Bonaparte’s Gull.

End of the season

The buckets are off the trees, the wood pile is spent and the sugaring is done. It is time to start putting in wood for next year.

It is hard to believe that it has been six years since I took this image in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Cedar Waxwing study

The red maples are flowering now and the Cedar Waxwings have been enjoying picking at the flowers. The weather has been unstable presenting us with a spring snow on Sunday morning. I was fortunate enough to be able to document some of the Cedar Waxwings.

Paper Mill Bridge, North Bennington, VT

There has been some sitework being done at the Paper Mill Bridge in North Bennington, VT. I’m looking forward to green leaves and the end to the stick season. It will be nice when the countryside greens up a bit.

The shy one

I have seen this Green Heron every time that I’ve been to this spot, but it usually flies off to the other side of the pond before I can get close enough for a shot. On this day, I found it watching from deep in the reeds.
