  1. I’ve seen a lot of herons and egrets hunting, I’ve seen a lot of herons and egrets standing in the fields. However, I’ve never actively seen them hunting in the fields, I never knew they were so proficient in hunting rodents! In the 30 minutes or so I watched a small group of herons and one egret caught one mouse after the other!

    Images are unfortunately a heavy crop with high ISO, but hopefully, in the future, I will get better shots

    I don’t love asking for ratings, but I’d appreciate them on these two from today. 

    Absolutely fantastic shots!!

     

    Based on the blood on its beak it looks like this Gray Heron had a fresh kill in the rain; " unfortunately" I did not witness that

  3. One from back home. It took a while for me to figure out what species it was, at first in the field I thought it was an ordinary buzzard. However, several apps and algorithms had problems with identifying this bird. Eventually someone noted the shape of the nostril; which is apparently distinct for the European Honey-buzzard. Even though this is "just" a joung bird, I am still happy with my first sighting of this species! 🙂

  4. Same here; for me it is not possible to go birding, make a selection, and edit those pictures on a regular day. We just got back from vacation and need to sort through, select, and edit a bit over 5000 photos. So here are the first that are done. I wish I could have gone lower with the green heron, but with several alligators nearby, I thought that was not a good idea 😅
