Share Your Best Photo of the Day


Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

Last year this hole was a Pileated Woodpecker nest. Earlier this spring it was occupied by a red morph Screech but it seemed to get evicted by this gray morph but turns out people have recently seen both leaving the nest after dusk. Hoping there's going to be some babies soon!

Why 'impossible'?  They're reasonably cooperative around here, as long as you stay a reasonable distance.  I've shot many from the 'car blind'.

A reasonable distance around here is at least one power poll away.

Yeah, that's about right.  Definitely need a lens with some reach.  But they're easily spotted, don't move constantly like warblers or kinglets, and usually don't go too far when flushed.

I was in a car once and we pulled off directly underneath a pole that had a Merlin perched on top. Too bad I didn't have my camera!
