I believe this is one of the 4 (2 pair) bald eagles that call loess bluffs nwr their year-round home - specifically the "east side" pair.
if this had been an immature bird, that is to say mostly brown and no telltale white head/tail, i'm not sure i would have seen it!

#shotoniphone Saturday afternoons while visiting Seattle are for playing in the yard with hummingbirds. Always love setting up this shot and waiting patiently for the hummers to come by, have a drink at the feeder, and check out my iPhoneX recording them. #shotonmoment

Last week I had the opportunity to drive up to Loess Bluffs NWR the day before the cold and snow came flying through. I have never hidden the fact that I enjoy raptors the most of all the birds, but I know and see more than just raptors in my birding journeys. 😊
I was driving the refuge auto tour and had pulled over and turned off the car to see what might come out if I sat there quietly for a few minutes. Everything that surfaced is enough for half a dozen OTHER stories, but when I heard a bird start singing very, VERY loudly, right in front of me, I started staring at this tree/brush pile about 15 yds. in front of me. I was hoping for movement so I could ID what I was hearing. After what seemed like an eternity (but was probably a minute and a half, tops) I caught movement. Using my binoculars I saw this little brown bird that was very

it's listed as "uncommon" for the area i was in, but there is a thin band on the range map for migration - right where i was! i wonder if it flew south ahead of our colder weather, or if it's still there?

The Stand-off. A Short story: Bob and Mark agreed to meet out back the puddle. They have been rivals for a long time. Bob stares at Mark and holds his ground. He’s not losing this time. Then Mark fakes a lunge! It catches Bob by surprise and he falls to the ground but quickly recovers. Then Mark lunges for real! This time Bob is ready and jumps out of the way! Mark is left looking like a fool. ‘Until next time Mark’ says Bob as he ruffles his feathers and Mark runs away. The End.  #birdphotography #bird #birdwatching #shortstory #thetaleoftwoplovers

Meet Central Park’s newest resident- this #MandarinDuck! This bird showed up out of nowhere over this last week and has made quite the buzz around town, it was even featured in the @nytimes yesterday. During the hour I spent photographing it I saw dozens and dozens of people, both locals and tourists, all coming out to greet this beauty. I love how nature can bring people together and I had so many wonderful conversations with strangers today, all excited about this duck that is normally found in east Asia. ...

I'm "into" red-tailed hawk subspecies in a big way, so now that our colder weather (and migratory raptors) have begun arriving, i took the opportunity to head north about 80 miles yesterday and see what i could see at loess bluffs nwr. a few immature bald eagles, northern harriers and ducks were hanging around, but the most exciting to me were the many red-tails in all their subspecies glory.
here is a shot of what i believe to be a darker northern (abieticola) bird, there were some real beauties, and i will be posting more as i get to them!

Which is brighter? The Northern Cardinal or the fall foliage he's sitting in front of? 😊 I actually have another frame that had 3 male Cardinals sitting in a tree filled with bright orange leaves - it's fantastic camouflage because they look like they are just 3 really bright leaves! Eastern Kansas has had some spectacular color this fall...🍃🍂🍁

Back in late september when i visited utah, @wildbirding and i met for dinner one night. i pull up beside her in the parking lot, briefly wondering why she's still in her car and the first thing she says to me - "do you have your camera with you?" "why yes, i do," i replied... "come on, i want to check this kestrel to see if it's one of the banded locals..."
so i grab my camera and hop into her car and off we go, dinner will have to wait a few minutes! a few blocks away one of the most handsome male american kestrels i've ever seen remains perched at the top of his tree, and i get several shots - enough to see that he is not banded, so the burning question was answered...
then i ate at my first del tacos - ever! not bad, and it beats the heck out of taco bell...
