Pole Hopping

public.jpeg

Teresa and I were driving back home after a hike. I had just commented that we have not seen a Hawk for a while, when we suddently saw this Red Tail Halk on this power pole. Teresa stoppped in the middle of the road and I got out and shot this photo.

It didn’t stop there. We moved closer, but he took off. We watched as he flew to the next pole. We slowly moved closer, only to watch him fly off to the next pole once again. This little game was repeated three times, and would have continued if we were wiling to play. We left him to have some peace. Clearly it was some kind of game 😳🤣.

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.
