This preserve is one of my favorite places to get away and is only about 10 minutes from home . It is nestled in the middle of suburbia outside Buffalo NY.There are numerous ponds which attract a great selection of duck/shorebird species and is home to 3 owl species. Also a great place to bird during the spring and fall migrations where you never know what will show up. This GC Kinglet was taken this past weekend where 2hrs were spent in a little grove of conifers following these little hyperactive gems waiting for them to come down to eye level . Almost 200 frames were shot and I managed about 6 great photos.

Pacu Jawi is Minangkabau term for cows racing tradition. Pacu Jawi is a traditional sport game that are contested in Tanah Datar regency, West Sumatra, Indonesia.
Every year, Pacu Jawi held in rotation for four weeks in four districts in Tanah Datar regency, namely Pariangan district, rambatan district, Limo Kaum district, and Sungai Tarab district. Pacu Jawi has existed since hundreds of years ago, which was originally an activity undertaken by farmers after the harvest season for leisure as well as a means of entertainment for the local community.
Unlike the Karapan Sapi on the island of Madura, races held on a dry track, Pacu Jawi in Tanah Datar regency was held in the paddy fields after harvest of the local population and in muddy conditions.
Interestingly, a pair of his own cows just ran unopposed, not with opposite sex couples as befits a race. Where, judgment is righteous or not righteous pair of cows in the running, in addition to travel time trajectory assessment. Moreover, this activity is also combined with the tradition of the local community, such as dance performances and traditional musical instruments play.
In this race a jockey riding pair of cows ( or Jawi in Minang language ) is flanked by plowman equipment while holding the tail of cows. Where a jockey will be equipped with runway plow made of bamboo as a stand when the race begins. The tool is one of the tools used by farmers to plow their fields.
To make pair of cows running faster, a jockey biting tails of cows or hitting it ass. The winner of Pacu Jawi is the pair of cows which is running straight to finish line without the slightest turn. Usually in a race we will see many cows turn, even those who move to another field.

It is Sunday and therefore it is featherless. I went to Lake Blue Cypress today with my wife, my son and my granddaughter. We found this Water Moccasin near the restrooms at the boat ramp.

The trumpeter swan (Cygnus buccinator) is a species of swan found in North America. The heaviest living bird native to North America, it also is on average, the largest extant species of waterfowl. It is the American counterpart and a close relative of the whooper swan of Eurasia, and even has been considered the same species by some authorities.
The adult trumpeter swan is all white in plumage. As with a whooper swan, this species has upright posture and generally swims with a straight neck. The trumpeter swan has a large, wedge-shaped black bill that can, in some cases, be minimally lined with salmon-pink coloration around the mouth.

We carefully watched these 2 pygmy owls for a morning, on a hill adjacent to a farm property, south of San Jose, Costa Rica.
The Male was more active, flying form perch to perch, the female would call once in a while to possibly guard the area., as their nest site was close by. Being careful not to disturb them, we came in and left quietly. these birds seemed totally indifferent to our presence.
A shot of the 2 mating, (posted earlier) was so cool, as this was the first time for me to see owls mating. Hopefully another chance in the future!
Thanks to everyone for looking, commenting, and sharing my images!
Kind regards, and have a very good week!
