New on Old

We saw this nest at Big Woods this week. There is actually an older nest, likely from last year, with new material put on top. I assume someone is moving in, and wanted a remodel. The open house will be later this fall.

A Bluebird Reunion

I included a couple photos of these Eastern Bluebirds in the video we published earlier this week, but I can’t stop looking at them. They were flying near the hiking trail we hiked. They were very close to the banks of the Stillwater River. I counted at least 8 of them, but I think the number was much higher. I just couldn’t keep track. I guess it was a bluebird reunion. I didn’t see any females. Such a beautiful bird.

The little Titmouse

This is a Tufted Titmouse. They are a small songbird and they are found around here, but this is the 1st time I remember photographing one. At fist, I thought I had taken a photo of another nuthatch, but after a closer look, I realized it was something different. The photos are not perfect, but she is still very cute.

Look up!

Earlier this week, we were out driving around while looking for birds to photograph. We had stopped at Garbry Big Woods but had not seen anything so I was ready to head towards home. Teresa starts pointing towards the sky ... I didn’t see anything at first, but then I saw this beautiful hawk flying overhead. I managed to capture her in this photography. I was at a perfect angle and she was at the right spot for an amazing photograph. I really like this photo.

Bird of prey

FullSizeRender.jpg

We were back outdoors taking photos yesterday. The temperature had climbed to double digits (barely) so it was time. We saw this hawk at least three times, but on the third time, I was finally in a position to capture a decent photo.

I was driving east when I saw her fly across the road in front of me. This was a country road and luck for us, no cars in sight. I pulled forward and looked to the south and there she was .. about 50 feet from me. She turned her head to face me, then just slowly rotated it back toward the south. I snapped off about 10 pictures, then just watched her until she flew away. We didn’t stick around since it was evident she was hunting and I didn’t want to disturb this beautiful creature.
