Fun Friday: What Kind of Pie is for Dessert? (Re-post)

Yummm … Magpie!   Actually, this Black-billed Magpie (Pica hudsonia) was in no real danger. The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) had a piece of fish in his talons (not visible from this angle, due to the snow) and was just being vigilant that this magpie didn’t move in to grab a piece.

Here’s a few images I made in the Chilkat River Valley during my last visit to Haines, Alaska, to photograph the bald eagles there … you tell me! Chilkat River […]

Up Close & Personal

In my last post, I shared some images of a Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in rather strange plumage. Today’s post includes more bald eagle images made during that trip. The bald eagles of the Chilkat River Valley (outside Haines, Alaska) often get ridiculously close to humans as they move about the river hunting for spawned-out salmon. […]

“What Did One Eagle Say to the Other Eagle?”

… “I’m going fishing!” During the past couple of weeks, the Missouri weather has been cold. Coupled with decreased wildlife activity, not much to photograph. So I’ve been doing a lot of image editing from the past few years, trying to make myself get rid of those images that are not of high quality, but have a […]

Trumpeter Swans, An Alaskan View

After posting yesterday’s blog on Trumpeter Swans I photographed last year at Squaw Creek NWR, I checked their website last night to get their latest bird counts (they usually conduct their counts every Tuesday). Wow … last week’s count was 51 Trumpeter Swans; yesterday’s count was 95! That sealed my schedule for tomorrow … I’m heading out to […]
