Baby, It’s Cold Outside!




Brrrrrrrr!!! Another cold day in the Heartland! Got up this morning, with much hesitation, with the outside temperatures at -3F. That reminded me of one of my trips to Alaska’s “Valley of Eagles”, located outside Haines, Alaska. So I decided it was very appropriate to go back and post a few of my favorite images […]

Fun Friday: Out On a Limb




While editing some older, Alaska images, I ran across this one image that I don’t believe I ever posted. While photographing bald eagles in the Valley of Eagles (near Haines, Alaska), this adult eagle flew in and landed in a dead tree a short distance from me: In this image, he is conversing with another […]

Valley of the Eagles




Today’s post features another Alaska image, one captured along the Chilkat River Valley near Haines, Alaska. In this protected region, also known as “The Valley of the Eagles”, warm thermals keep the Chilkat River open well into November and a late salmon run attracts thousands of bald eagles along a 2.5 mile stretch. This image […]

Fun Friday: Hitching a Ride




This Fun Friday post comes from my last trip to the Venice Rookery. While photographing the large variety of birds arriving at, departing from, and nesting at the rookery, I captured this Laughing Gull flying over with a hitchhiker, a frog:

Bird Heaven, Part 1




When I travel in 2018 to photograph in Florida, one of my destinations will likely be the Venice Rookery, where many different species of birds visit and nest. Here are a few images of Great Egrets I captured during my 2014 trip: I still need to research this location, to determine if the recent hurricane […]

It’s About That Time!




With temperatures getting colder next week and winter knocking on our door, it’s about time for Bald Eagles and Short-eared Owls to again take residence in Missouri for the winter. In fact, I saw an adult eagle soaring over a field near my home just a week or so ago. And yesterday, a good friend […]

Fun Friday: Where’s Waldo?




On one of my trips back down from the summit of Mount Evans, a small group of Ptarmigan were encountered that were foraging among the rocks, beside the road. Ptarmigan reside in these higher altitudes, but are difficult to spot as they blend in so well with their surroundings. Luckily, this small group were walking […]
