A few more Kestrel shots. And a butterfly of some kind.




I'll bet that was a fun shoot

As always fantastic shots in this thread.

I have not had much to post lately. The birds seem not me coming back to this area this summer. I've checked all of my spots from the last few years and nothing so far.

Saw this guy while on a drive while camping. The only long lens I had was my DA*60-250 and my Tamron 1.4TC to get 350mm.

The sight that first caught my attention.


The I saw this guy.


He didn't stay put for very long. I had to shoot from the drivers seat over my towing mirror.


Good thing for burst mode.







Of course the day before on the nice sunny day when i drove by here there was nothing here. I think those vultures need to watch the weather report more.

A real treat. There were two chicks, they were starting to fly about, staying close to the nest. It looked like the adults were rewarding their adventurousness with food. I wasn't sure I had anything, stuff in branches in bright sun is tricky, but it seemed to work ok.

I wonder why so many? I saw a large group like that a few years ago when a hay field was mowed, leaving lots of small rodent carcasses caught in the blades. There must be some dead meat somewhere.

Vultures can be gregarious when roosting. I've encountered two roosting trees, one in Florida and one many years back in western SoDak. Forty or so vultures in each.

Thanks Bob, lately I've been lucky to even see these. All my locations have been empty so far this year.

I was wondering the same thing. There is lots of farm land around and deer. I did not see any roadkill anywhere either. I've seen two or three before but never that many at once.

Northern Flicker takes a bath.

Here is a bath sequence all over a couple of minutes. we often leave a small bowl of water on the back deck for the critters, but here a Northern flicker decided it was a bird bath.
