Yea I was pretty unsure how he was going to react to me and yes I was nervous. Cant get the shot if you're scared,, and that's why I don't have some really close up Black Bear shots!  :o

This huge Redtail Hawk stopped today by to check things out. There was too much brush and air between us to get a good capture. Still cool to watch him watching me.

Really nice work Mike.  You could get these published in a field guide or magazine.

Carolina Chickadee


Red Bellied Woodpecker



Pileated Woodpecker


Eastern Towhee. These birds have gotten to know me and it almost feels like the welcome me everyday when I show up.


Osprey
One of my most prized shots. I caught this one just as a Black Swallowtail buzzed the Osprey's head giving the Osprey a good scare.

Sneak Attack!






Grackle


One of my favorites, Carolina Wren.


Tufted Titmouse

TT who thought it was hidden from the 600mm...


House Finch

Some gorgeous shots Mike. I have an owl in the neighborhood, just trying to figure out where he lives, seen him in the same tree multiple times, a big fella, once I narrow it down, I will let you know.

Couldn't agree more on the Bluejays.

If you see him more then once in daylight let me know. I have ways to get them to come to me.

I think that the ducks you were not sure about are blue wing teal. Thanks for the beautiful pictures. The pictures take me away from my gloomy mood this time of the year.

I think your right they are BWT's.

Thanks for the compliments! It's one of the things that makes life better IMO. It's alot like fishing. Some of these guys are hard to get close to so it is challenging. I get to be in the outdoors being part of the natural world. At the end of the day if I did everything right I get a good picture of my trophy.

What is the blue/orange small bird above?  Just saw one this morning while I was out walking the river trail and wondered what it was...
