  1. Only one I've seen. He showed up at the feeders last winter...
  2. It wasn't really concern; just curiosity. Since the Wood Duck most likely arrived there with a group of friends, why he didn't leave when they did?
  3. I would think that procreation would be the primary reason birds flock. But I suppose that's how hybrids come along. Thanks @Charlie Spencer.
  4. How do ducks/geese get separated from their flocks? At a lake here in Bowling Green (Basil-Griffin Park), there is 1 Wood Duck hanging out with a group of Mallards and a Ross's Goose hanging out with the Canadas and the domestics that "live" in the park. Will they eventually find a flock of their own species again? An ebird check list shows there were 4 Wood ducks on the 19th, but I was out there yesterday and this morning and only saw 1. Just curious...
  5. Came across this cuteness today. Seems really late for them to be this young. The little one is about 1/2 the size of the others and he's got a bum leg.
  6. Their webs were suspended over the boardwalk in the Mangroves. It was a panic attack inducing experience walking under spiders the size of my hand...lol
  7. @PalmWarbler I could fill a warehouse with photos of headless birds...lol
  8. 90% of the photos I take/post are taken on my street. I live in the county surrounded by woods and pastures. This is the first Red-headed Woodpecker I've ever seen out here.
  9. Thanks @RobinHood It's more curiosity then anything. This is what I'm used to seeing, light in the middle and buffy down the sides, which is why I thought he looked so odd. LIke I said, just curious.
  10. This chunky buck crossed my path on my morning walk a couple days ago
  11. I took this a couple days ago here in Southern KY. I'm used to seeing Carolinas but this one seemed to have an inordinately dark breast. He's facing the sun so it's not shadowed....Any thoughts? Thanks
  12. Banana Spider (I think) hanging out in the Mangroves. They are huge and creepy...
  13. American Coots at Reelfoot in Western Tennessee
  14. When warm water combines with cold air and turns the Barren River Valley into an ocean coastline....
