As usual, whenever an outing goes very well, it’s […]

Those Beautiful Red Birds!




One of my favorite wading birds is the Roseatte Spoonbill. Unfortunately, they are not seen in my neck of the woods. Here are a few images of these beautiful birds that I captured a few years ago while in Florida: Can’t wait to get back to Florida … hope it’s sooner, rather than later!   […]

Owl Prowl, Part 1




Today’s post features some images I captured this past Saturday, as I photographed Short-eared Owls as they began their hunting ritual around sunset. Short-eared Owls are not year-round residents in my area. But in winter, they often will migrate southward, from the upper Midwest prairies, to prairie land in Missouri. These owls are one of […]

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 […]

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:

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 […]

Raven Fly-by




During one of my trips to the summit of Mount Evans, a small group of Ravens soared overhead. Here is my favorite image of one of the ravens as it made a close fly-by: I will be quite busy over the next 10 days, initiating a new and interesting photo project. It is likely that […]
