Phainopepla

I spent some time in Palm Springs, California over the Holidays. This male Phainopepla shot is the first image that I kept from the  trip.

Sandwich Terns

I have so much fresh material to post that I’m going to bypass my normal Forgotten Photo Friday post where I dig deep and find a good picture that had not been posted. Perhaps this is ensureing that these do not become Forgotten Photos of the Future.

Royal Tern

I have mentioned before that I like to go out to Clearwater Beach early in the morning to work with the terns before the normal beach crowd arrives. Here is a shot of a Royal Tern resting in the sunshine.

Red-shouldered Hawk

There is a little park near our condo in Florida. I found this immature Red-shouldered Hawk had taken up residence for a few weeks there. It would frequent the tops of the light fixtures and scan the grass for a meal.

It would spy something in the grass and swoop down. I took this shot because it shows the field marks; the faint rusty patch on the shoulder and the beige patch on the outer primary feathers.

Oh, that is why they call them “Ring-necked Ducks”

It is just one of those things. There are so many other names you could call this duck. Why “Ring-necked”?

Palm Warblers photo study

There are a good deal of Palm Warbers in Clearwater during this time of year. Below are images of them in their winter plumage, which is quite different than what we see when they come up through Massachussets in the spring.
Here is a shot of two of my favorite subjects in one image; birds and dragons.

Turns of Clearwater Beach

If you make the trip over to Clearwater Beach you will find some fun terns there.

Back from traveling

Greetings and salutations! Happy New Year! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season. It has been a while since my last post.

Since November, I have been to Tampa, then over to Clearwater and back home. In December, I went back to Clearwater then over to Palm Springs, California and back to Clearwater. I am now in Massachusetts.

When I am in Clearwater, I like to go over to Clearwater Beach early in the morning before most of the beach goers arrive. I saw these two Fish Crows staking out their spot on the beach.
