Birds - Most Popular All-Time
Sentinel    While one mate is off gathering sticks or fishing ... the other guards the nest from other osprey (claim jumpers are a problem during nest building).
Common Kingfisher
Red-breasted Nuthatch (male) / Sittelle à poitrine rousse (mâle)  Sitta canadensis  Family Sittidae    Added to Life List: 24 March 2007
We were out driving yesterday and spotted this owl in a tree.  Not sure what kind yet.      Where is my bird book?  ;-)    I believe this is a barred owl.    Three other shots in gallery.
Sometimes you shoot a silhouette and really really wish it wasn't. I haven't seen such a good pose in a long time.
Femle Osprey On Watch    She led me over here and posed for pics, just so long as I stopped bothering her kids! Crop only, otherwise straight out of the camera.
Even when they're resting, they appear to be on the alert!    Best viewed XLarge.    One thing I always seem to lack is enough lens.  So, if you'd like to contribute to Mike's "500mm f/4 fund", please let me know!  ;-)    Have a blessed day!
