Wild Bird Wednesday


Cooper's Hawk







This is not my big beautiful female Cooper's Hawk that visits my tree regularly ... judging from the size, I am going to guess it is a handsome male.  The squirrel was curious, but thought the better of sticking around ... enjoy :)

Scribble Picnic





Generous
Generosity seems to come naturally for many species, but the human animal has managed to let greed and hate smother his generous instincts and is turning our world into turmoil.  Nature always wins out in the end, though, so it would behoove some people to rethink!

Wild Bird Wednesday


King Fisher






This little character has lived on my lake for years, but every time I hear him and run for my camera, he is gone before I get back.  But this time I fooled him.  I spotted him from my loft in the house and snuck out of my house with the camera and got several shots before he took off ... Alas, it made my day!

Scribble Picnic





Original

This is a common Christmas scene at our house ... those of you who have cats will know what I mean.  I don't know a cat that can resist a ribbon on a package :)

Loons
















A small group of Loons spent a few days resting on our lake as they migrate back to a warmer climate.

Cookie

(original)

Izzi will steal anything off of the counter if given the chance ... and a cookie would be a choice tidbit :)  Thanks Micheal ... this was fun :)

Wild Bird Wednesday


Flight Training at the Nature Center
 Technically this bird is not in the wild though he will always be a wild bird.  He is a rehab bird being kept by our Raptor Organization because he cannot be returned to the wild ... but when I saw these pictures I thought it was an opportunity to see a magnificent Red Tail in flight.  Enjoy ...










 




He is being flown on a creance line so he can't fly off, but eventually we will be able to remove the line and even send him into the trees and he will return to the glove.   It is truly an awesome experience ...
