Eagle

This eagle reminds me of a judge wearing his judicial robe.

O Hai

Come any closer and I'll jump!

Old Hawk

Seems like one's lens is never quite long enough. Saw this old hawk in a tree but he flew away before I could get close to him.

Lorikeet

A Rainbow Lorikeet at the Louisville Zoo.

Fatso

A rather fat Mockingbird, in the sticks, at Tom Sawyer Park.

Towhee

An Eastern Towhee almost in the open. These darn birds like to be among the sticks and branches so it's tough to get an opportunity to catch one in the wide open spaces.

Bath Time For Robin

Apparently, late afternoon is bath time for many of the Robins in Tom Sawyer Park. This one spent considerable time lathering, rinsing and repeating.

And this is what the creek sounded like. You can start the sound playing and then view the photo at full size to feel like you were there. Watch out for splashing!

House Finch

A common House Finch adding to the colors of Autumn.

Li'l Hummer

A feisty little hummingbird taking a break. You should hear these guys chatter!

My Good Side...

This bird wanted to make sure I was getting its "good side" in the photo.

Mother's Day - 2011

Shot this on Mother's Day since Mrs. Robin here decided to use my backyard light as an incubator. I hope she knows what she's doing because the 4 eggs that were in the nest are gone and, in their place, is just one little robin. It seems to sleep a lot and "mom" continues to sit on it. I did see that it was breathing but it doesn't look right to me. It lays on the bottom of the nest instead of looking up for food or its mother. Maybe the cold snap was too much for it. We shall see...

Turkey Vulture - Juvenile

You can't take it too personally when you find yourself surrounded by a family of turkey vultures. At least "junior" here was willing to pose for photos. The rest of the family was a little more reserved.

Nothing Goes To Waste

A little Tufted Titmouse gathers fur from a fox carcass for use in its nest. I watched this guy for quite a while and he (or she) was quite tenacious about pulling that fur up.
