Geese flyover

This past Sunday morning, we hiked in the snow. The snow had stopped, but these geese had to check it all out. There is something cool about how geese fly. Generally they are messy birds, but grace is not something they lack when flying.

Downy :)

This is a downy woodpecker. They are very common in this part of Ohio and they don’t migrate. I didn’t see very many of them until later Fall, but now they seem to be everywhere I hike. Cool woodpecker!

Those beautiful waxwing

This is another shot from early this fall. There was dozens of these Ceadar Waxwings at Stilwater Prairie Reserve on that fall day. They are such a beautiful bird.

Flicker and Owls

I took this photo of this Northern Flicker several weeks ago as she groomed near the Miami River. I focused on her for a long time, hoping to get a photo when she took a break, but she ignored me.

Last night we took a hike looking for owls. We managed to see one Eastern screech Owl, and hear at least one more. We believe we also heard a fox or two. It was a cold night. I will see if any of our pictures or video are any good later. Interesting experience. It always is.

Teresa took this photo at at Eastwood MetroPark. It was a warm fall day, and the ducks and waterfowl were very active. Most of the people there were fishing .. we were photographing. Life is good!
