I was walking through the house this morning when I noticed a flash of blue outside. As I watched, there were five bluebirds diving at each other. They would land in the tree or on the shepherd hook and then the next thing you know, another would come along and dive it. Perhaps some of them were the youngsters from last year. I watched them for a while and then decided that I ... Click to continue reading & see more photos
Birds–"a warm-blooded egg-laying vertebrate distinguished by the possession of feathers, wings, and a beak and (typically) by being able to fly". Birds come in many shapes & sizes and are a great photography subject.
Birds are finally at the feeders again. I am so excited. Granted, they are mostly goldfinches but after a VERY long dry spell with bird feeding, I'm happy to see anything at the feeders. In the last few days, I started to see some other kinds of birds so I am hoping that the dry spell is over. Won't be long before all those entertaining goldfinches head north and I sure hope ...

He told me to check to see if I could ... Click to continue reading & see more photos

Eagle cams are educational and fun to watch. I have checked on the eagles in Maine over the years and I just found a North Carolina eagle cam and thought that I would share the sites with you. What I don't like about these USTREAM cams is the amount of advertising that they do on the bottom of the cam feed but, hey, they have to pay the bills. You can "X" out most (but not all) ...
