  1. Greater Yellowlegs and some soft, subtle colors
  2. Cormorants have really stunning blue eyes!
  3. A Common Black Hawk~! Definitely a very cool bird to see soaring overhead.
  4. You can practically hear this photo! I love it!
  5. I took this photo almost a month ago, but my life has been incredibly hectic and I'm just now going through the photos I took that day. I simply love the subtle colors surrounding this Black Phoebe.
  6. A failed Take-off picture of a Black-crowned Night Heron.
  7. The sun was incredibly bright and shining directly into my eyeballs, but I could tell there was a bird shape in the tree ahead of me. I zoomed in. I couldn't even tell from the preview shot on my camera because it was pretty shaded where this guy was at. So it wasn't until I uploaded and did some slight editing to this shot on my computer that I was able to tell- an Eastern Bluebird in Southern NM. Yay! He literally flew off right after this one picture and I haven't seen him since.
  8. The photo itself isn't funny, but the story behind it is. And I swear this is 100% true. I was taking photos of this Snowy Egret and two teenage to maybe 20-year-old girls walked by and the one exclaimed "It's a FLAMINGO" and her friend said "Nah, that can't be a flamingo. Can it?" And I'm just over here like "Lord give me the strength not to start my 'bird educator' mode." I realize we all have to start somewhere, but a Flamingo? Oh boy.
  9. Cool in-flight action shot. Now if only it was in focus and the heron was a little more centered.
  10. I love this picture so much. The duck was hissing at the snowy egret for getting too close to his ducky lady friend.
  11. I recently learned there are MORE cardinal species than the two I've personally seen. I've photographed both the Northern Cardinal and the Pyrrhuloxia, or Desert Cardinal. If anyone has seen any of the others, please share! I'm particularly interested in the vermilion cardinal. What an absolute rockstar-looking bird! Reminds me of a red version of a phainopepla, which despite being in my range, I've never seen either!
  12. Cooper's Hawk reminding us all foot stretches are important! Check out the talons!
  13. The most boring serenade ever. Boo! Get off the stage!
