Be sure to enjoy this photo with its official soundtrack!
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.
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!
Sharp focus is the key!
This bird wanted to make sure I was getting its "good side" in the photo.
Steller's sea eagles are the largest species of eagle in the world.
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...
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.
Just an all-around colorful scene.
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.
