Birds

The bluebird carries the sky on its back. Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

  1. Bald Eagle

  2. Burrowing Owl

  3. Eastern Meadowlark

    This photo is special to me because I spent quite a long time capturing this moment. Every time I got near enough to snap the shutter, the meadowlark would fly to another tree. Throughout the whole time, it never stopped singing.

  4. Great Egret

  5. Great Horned Owl

    Owl's Eye View

  6. Green Heron

  7. Little Blue Heron

    Which is up? Which is down? The Little Blue Heron's plumage is not blue until it reaches adulthood.

  8. Red-bellied Woodpecker

  9. Red-shouldered Hawk

  10. Roseate Spoonbill

  11. Screech Owl

  12. Sharp-shinned Hawk

    This hawk decided the best place to wait for dinner was at our bird feeder.

  13. Smooth-billed Ani

  14. Snowy Egret

    As it flies over the water, the snowy egret dangles its bright yellow feet into the water's surface to stir up unsuspecting prey. It will also shuffle its feet while walking in the water.

  15. Tri-colored Heron

  16. Tri-colored Heron

    This heron is named for its blue, white, and maroon coloration.
