    I saw three young Hooded Mergansers this morning on a shallow creek in Ohio which I think is a bit late in the season for them to still be here.

    Ornate Hawk-Eagle from Costa Rica, where I'm spending the summer. Needless to say it's been pretty great.

    That is an Archangel, known also as a Gimpel. The colors are intense. Not an uncommon variety of domestic show pigeon. They come with copper or gold bodies, and various colored wings, including white as pictured here. But, pigeons with white wings occur in a number of breeds. It is usually called magpie, or saddle, or white wing or pied. And thanks for the vote of confidence. At least I am knowledgeable on something, I think. 🥴

    Incredibly cooperative Mississippi Kite. It remained perched about 50 feet up on this snag for at least 10 minutes, long enough to get shots from multiple angles. When it took off, it circled for a couple of minutes more, but the flight shots are hardly worth posting. First time I've tried dragging a file into the text window. Let's see how this 'Uploaded Image' looks. EDIT: That worked. Hey, it zooms in when you click it! Who knew?

    I had fun slowly sneaking up on a heron yesterday and got within about 6-8 feet. He was falling asleep so every time he closed his eyes I'd sneak up a bit more. Never noticed before but their eyes have reddish/orange outer irises.

    I just gotta share these up-close photos from my Great Blue Heron close encounter a couple days ago. These images were captured with a Canon T6i with a kit lens. Apparently these birds have at least one grooved/ribbed toenail for some reason?! You can see the herons cockatoo thingy on his head sticking out and in the last 2 photos, and I can just barely see his beak in the last picture. I have never seen such a lovely blob of feathers.

    You bet!! If I reverse the numbers in my age and divide them by 2 I'm only 13-1/2 yrs old!!! 😁 Unfortunately that will only work for 10 more days, though. Then if I do that I'll be 18-1/2. See how much faster you age the older you get!!??!!
