  3. Always thought Brown Creepers blended in pretty good.
  4. I remember the first time I saw this behavior I thought the bird had died. I guess it gets exhausting holding up that big beak all the time!
  5. I always keep an eye out for Cuckoos & Orioles whenever I see a nest, they seem to love them!
  6. Tent Caterpillars Black Swallowtail Red-spotted Purple Euxoa detersa - Rubbed Dart
  7. This is an old shot & I know this is a bird but it's the situation that was unusual. I thought it was strange this heron was staying put & not taking off as I got closer. After looking carefully I realized the Heron's left foot had actually frozen in place while it was roosting & it couldn't move if it wanted to. Happily when I returned later it had warmed up enough for it to get free & it had departed. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this happen?

  9. Nice shot to you as well! I really like Robber Flies, they're so bizarre. Almost like creatures from another planet.

  19. Thanks very much!! Since I got into birding they tend to be almost exclusively the subject in my pics & I develop tunnel vision. Thankfully mother nature puts stuff in front of us sometimes that reminds us to take in the big picture too.
  20. First one looks like it has blood around the neck, predator attack maybe? The second, I've actually seen quite a few gulls, Cormorants, shorebirds, etc. missing legs or parts of legs. I always thought possibly they had been attacked by fish while sitting on the water? I also saw a Ruddy Turnstone once that had fishing gear wrapped around it's leg & the lower part of the leg had turned black & seemed ready to fall off 😞.
