Goofy in the rain

Playing with extension tubes and filters and going stir-crazy from rainy weather.

Lazy strolling

Between cold weather and opera responsibilities I've not been birding as often as I'd like to.  The birds are around.  Food hunting creeper. And singing male redwing blackbirds.
Not exactly cooperative fox sparrows.
On high Pale Male.
Harbinger of spring: the pine warbler.
Is it ever going to get warm and stay warm?????

Back then

End of March 2005.  Everyone in an eating mood.
I didn't look for this. Young hawk flew right pass my head. I stayed plastered to a tree to watch.
A hawk lover had tied raw chicken breast to a limb. "I want to help the babies", she explained. Oy!!! Not a good idea.
Down on West End Avenue the starlings found their own delicacy.

Perfect lunch

I could watch this routine all day. Sorry if you think this is boring. It's my blog and I love robins.

Hunt and slurp

I love this,.... the stare, the jab, the jank, and then the slurp. "Spaghetti" time.
Oops!  Caught a leaf.
