    You may have noticed a theme developing but as well as being in my overall top ten of favourite birds they are now my Number 1 for entertainment value (if you get a chance just watch them for a while). This one snagged a crayfish and resisted several sibling attacks (including grabbing its miniscule wing and trying to drag it underwater) before needing several attempts to swallow it. They are amazingly self confident at this age - one of the chicks had a confrontation with a Canada Goose and the goose backed off (the adults routinely chased off Mute Swans).

    Tonight is the first time the juvenile Great Horned Owls came to the yard before dark. It gave a chance to get some better pics of them playing.

    From this morning--a pair of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks with 13 chicks. I'm not sure where these nested but they often nest in tree cavities.

    Not the greatest of photos, but I thought this Gray Catbird posed nicely for me.

    Just after sunset, we frequently have 2 to 3 Great Horned Owls come up to the yard. Tonight one posed in the Oak tree.

    A Barred owl chick. They nested in the same area last year, but these owlets are far behind where the other chicks were at this point. My profile picture is the owlets last year taken on August 4th. A lot more downy feathers on these ones! Unfortunately they only like to be out in bad lighting. Still have yet to see an actual adult Barred Owl....

    I was sitting on the bank of a river today when something frightened away the Louisiana Waterthrush I was watching. I soon found out what scared it...

    Be -VERY- careful marking Rubber Chicken based solely on the call. eBird will usually flag the ID since It extremely difficult to differentiate from Rubber Ducky.
