This catbird decided to pose for my camera.  They are good singers as well; all night long.

July 26, 2017

I found this cardinal on my way home Saturday morning.  It was missing its head feathers, which gave it the appearance of a skeksis from the movie The Dark Crystal.

These birds are small, and members of the woodpecker family.  usually they don’t let me get so close, but this one was as curious about me, as I was about it.

Great egrets are one of the most beautiful marsh birds. Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph one using my 600 mm lens.

May 5, 2017

This is the time of the year when snowy egrets start migrating in this part of the country.  They are beautiful, and their bodies are about the size of a seagull.  Today’s shot is of the first one I’ve seen this year.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.

First Look Photo: Spring Birds are Back

March 29, 2017

At the close of every Winter, there are several signs that the Spring weather is here to stay.  The cardinals singing is one of them, but the next sign is the return of the Spring birds, of which the Cedar Waxwing is one of them.  I spotted this one on Sunday, on my walk home.

March 10, 2017

Every year, towards the end of Winter, I look for certain signs that the warm up is on the way.  The first of these signs is the sound of the cardinal.  Most of the year, it is a short peep, but right before the warm up it changes to a beautiful song used to attract a mate.

Today’s picture is of a cardinal in the middle of its call.

Here’s a shot I took this week.  This downy woodpecker was hard to keep still long enough, but this was the best shot he gave me.
