  1. After eating a ground squirrel, the neighborhood hawk cleaned its beak with the equivalent of dental floss. Yet another bird behavior I haven't seen before! Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at 1000mm and 1600mm from about 100 feet. see:
  2. After missing a passing insect, it ruffles its feathers then regurgitates some food (left over Chock Cherry pit and insect). Taken with Nikon Coolpix P950 at a distance of 150 feet on a hot August afternoon near Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  3. Using my Nikon Coolpix P950 at 1000mm and 2000mm focal lengths, I captured a young Meadow Lark preening and singing. I slowed down the bird's song by 50% in the last part of this clip.
  4. These European Collared Doves have become a fixture around my house this year as my trees are starting to provide shelter and a good nesting location for these shy birds. Focal Length (35mm format) - 1600 mm For more videos, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OUZEfCjIiI

  6. This bird has been a regular during the past month. It seems to know when I am photographing it. I produced a short video clip of it, worth a peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfvxkepe20c&list=PLFOag6HjHS4cuI3TU_ZQZrX4xXlZvtM9e&index=2
  7. These birds of prey were taking time out to preen themselves while winds ruffled their feathers. It was difficult to catch them facing me but I managed this by taking a frame from my video below. Not certain if they were a mating pair or mother-juvenile pair. The one on the left looks to be the same as the one here last year. Taken at 2000mm focal length with a Nikon P950 on 4 May near Cheyenne, Wyoming. A video of this can be viewed at: .
  8. These shy birds are difficult to photograph but I got lucky. They were about 60 feet away. Nikon P950 Focal Length (35mm format) - 1100 mm.
  9. Can anyone confirm my suspicions that this is a Swainson's Hawk? Taken today (4/22) 6 miles northeast of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  10. Tony: No field guide but I use Audubon, Merlin Bird ID, and Raptor ID apps.
  11. Thanks Charlie. I'm seeing their migration/nesting range now. Very cool!!!
  12. Wow. Thanks Kevin and Hasan. Thought they are restricted to Florida?
  13. Sorry for the small image but I'm hoping that the profile of this large bird on my roof can be identified. I'm located 6 miles northeast of Cheyenne, Wyoming. Taken ~3:50PM today (4/22). Possible craine? Thanks, Jan
