A Nice Drop-in Visitor

Today’s post features an unexpected, but very welcome visitor to our Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri)  home. As I was watching for more osprey activity, this young adult Bald Eagle soared overhead at our lakeside home: This eagle looked to be 4-5 years of age, as evidenced by the mottled coloring still in his feather […]

They Just Keep Coming

Today’s post again features the “fish hawk”, the Osprey. A little “gold mine” has hit in our cove … frequent visits from several ospreys. I’ve seen ospreys here, all throughout the summer, but their visits were very infrequent. However, lately there has been a steady stream of ospreys flying into our cove and fishing, often […]

On this particular day, there were two ospreys circling overhead. One dove into the water and emerged with a fish and then […]

Late Breakfast

Today’s post features a Yellow-crowned Night Heron, patiently waiting for breakfast to show up. These images were captured in Ding Darling NWR (SW Florida) this past February: Typically, I’ve found these birds to be a bit difficult approaching. But this bird was pretty tame … and probably pretty hungry, as he sat motionless for quite […]

A Cause for Eye Strain

Today’s post features a bird that likes to hide among the rocks of Mt. Evans, in Colorado. The White-tailed Ptarmigan wears a great coat of feathers that hides him against the rocks as he forages … in the summer months. However, in winter, that coat changes to a white coat that hides him in the […]

My, What Long Legs You Have!

Myakka River State Park is a wonderful place to see/photograph birds. One of the unique birds I sometimes see here is the Black-necked Stilt. Standing tall with their skinny, long legs, they […]

This medium-sized bird has a glossy iridescent bronze-green body color, that seems to change colors as the bird moves about and as seen from different viewing angles. In these images, this bird is foraging in the Myakka River (Myakka River […]

This image was captured along the Myakka River, in Myakka River State Park, just outside Sarasota, one of my favorite places to visit when I go to Florida. As the sun began to set, nice lighting fell upon this foraging […]
