Palm Warbler

I was privileged to see a Palm Wrbler in Ohio, at Magee Marsh, and then four days later, I also saw this bird in Medina, New York, at the Ringneck Marsh, Iroquois Wildlife Nature Preserve.

Chicken House

Black-hooded Oriole

This photo taken with the Nikon P1000 at 467 mm. I did edit it with the “dehaze” slider in Lightroom and cropped it, as well.

Black-rumped Flameback

Shot with the Nikon P1000, I had loaned for the day. This was at 135 mm for not exhausting the 4.3 to 539 mm megazoom lens.

Am I Next? Chicken Fry?

Is Spring Here?

I saw a flash of orange, and sure enough, there were two robins in my back yard on January 6!!

My first Christmas morning taxi customer, as we were passing this eagle, wondered if I had ever seen it! I said no, pressed the red button for my hazard lights, and backed down the road, till I could get a good view of the bald eagle. I got out and grabbed a quick shot before going down the road. A nice gift by a thoughtful passenger, and we still arrived at our first destination two minutes ahead of schedule! In the coming year, let’s be alert to times when we can give gifts to others, even in simple ways, such as pointing out this regal bird to an avid bird photographer! Happy Holidays

This colorful bird posed for me, and then the mate flew by and lured the bird into the air! This was at Crescent Bend Nature Park in Schertz, Texas, near San Antonio.  I have been on a two week business/pleasure trip in Texas, so my blogging has taken a back seat! Hopefully soon, more posts will appear! Hope you all have a great weekend!
