  1. Thanks. Not really a birder myself but your guess seems very reasonable. JC
  2. Sorry, Cheyenne, Wyoming late afternoon.
  3. Based on shape, flight, etc. what would you say these birds are. To me it looks like a bird of prey but could be a crow?? This simple minimalist image was made possible due to the thick smoke from nearby wild fires (4 Oct). Selected frames from a Nikon P950 in video mode (30 fps without filter) were stacked and darkened in Photoshop. Not sure what kind of birds these were. I wonder how long one must wait for something to pass in front of the sun? I suppose it depends on focal length.
  4. A first for me. I saw this bird flying earlier over my field and never through it would land nearby hours later. This shot was taken through my closed window. A beautiful bird! Focal Length (35mm format) - 1000 mm
  5. If video isn't working, you can view at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/79387036@N07/.
  6. This hawk remained stationary except for head motion for nearly 45 minutes. This clip shows the only time when the hawk moved. The wings are sure impressive when they are spread.
  7. I feel dumb today. I need help in ID. Near Cheyenne, Wyoming. It was eating insects. Thanks, Jan
  8. Thanks Avery. I think you may be right!
  9. While filming clouds this morning, this bird flew by the instant I snapped the shutter. It was about 20 feet away. Thanks, Jan
  10. This hawk has been nesting nearby and a neighbor was attacked as she neared its nest two weeks ago. Her head injuries required a ER visit. This bird is a concern because my small Maltese dog is vulnerable if left alone outside. In this clip, I like how the wind ripples through its tail feathers. Taken on the outskirts of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  11. This beautiful bird of prey was across the street when I happened to catch it eating a field mouse. Taken with a Nikon P950 at 2000mm in video mode. Processed in Lightroom and Photoshop. Taken 1 August from Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  12. This nesting chick made use of my spruce tree. I thought it only fair that I got to within 2 feet of it for this shot.
  13. Seems like this is a Loggerhead Shrike. Sorry about that. I'm very new to Birding.
  14. Birds around my house know I'm into weather. This bird was taken through a closed and dirty window. The horizontal lines is fence meshing. Nikon P950, Focal Length (35mm format) - 1800 mm --> hand held!
