A Cardinal Squat

And then he was gone. This squatting motion did not last long, but it preceded a quick takeoff. It’s still a beautiful Northern Cardinal.

Who’s There?

Another one of my favorites is the Red-bellied Woodpecker. We saw this one a couple weeks ago at Glen Helen Nature Preserve. He was all over this tree, and it took a while to get a good photo.

Free Flying

As we drove into the Nature Preserve parking lot, we saw this Broad-winged Hawk making her entry as well. She parked in a tree across the field, where I was able to capture a couple photos. The best photo may be this one, as she grew nervous about our cameras and took flight to a more secure, and hidden location.

We have not been out to make a video for a few days. Teresa sprained her knee, and I have been getting in some extra biking with one of my sons. I hope we can get out sometime this week.

Back to Finch Watching

I saw this little guy just over my head while hiking. He did not stick around long, but as you can see, it was long enough for me to capture a photo.

There is something very cool about a Goldfinch. It’s that combination of colors, their energy, and very interesting flight path. They are a fun bird to watch.

A Different Kind of Deer

public.jpeg

Teresa caught this photo of a This Killdeer this week. I have seen a few of them, but have not been able to get a decent photo. This was a tough shoot, but she was able to capture a couple of photos.I love the depth of field with the blue water of the pond in the background.

Have you ever seen a killdeer use it’s defense of playing like it is injured? It’s something to see. I saw one do it last fall. It’s interesting.
