Presistent Woodpecker

This Red-bellied Woodpecker was making a lot of noise, but he was sure hard to locate. Between his call and the pounding we knew he was there. We looked for a good ten minutes before I spotted him in a distant tree. One very presistent bird.

A Dove Chillin

This dove seems to have found zen her spot. Have you noticed that you can identify a Morning Dove just by how they land? It’s very distinct.

The more I photograph birds, the more I find unique behaviors that help to identify them. Yesterday it was the call of a woodpecker, then a cardinal. You can also identify some birds by the cadence of there wings, and even the path of their flight. I’ll have to add some details on this in future post.

Walking On Water

Teresa and I were driving through the Stillwater Prairie Reserve, heading to one of our favorite hiking spots when I saw this scene. One of these geese seemed very confused by the ice, the other one was just enjoying walking on the water.

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.

Flicker in the Snow

It has been months since I photographed a Northern Flicker. I think I have seen this one a couple of times, but never where I could clearly identify him, or capture a photograph. This is a male Northern Flicker, and he is beautiful.

I posted three shots because they all lack something that is in a different photo. I love the colors of this bird. I hope you enjoy it too.

By the way, it was snowing .. that is not your eyes.
