I’ve been spotting more and more Yellow-rumped Warblers over the past 10 to 14 days and I am excited because I have been expecting them to start showing up in my viewfinder. [Two photos]

This Ruby-crowned Kinglet had been actively foraging in a tamarisk when suddenly it flew to this bare stick and perched out in the open for a few seconds.

Typically I would prefer that all of the body of this Black-capped Chickadee was free of the out of focus elements in front of it but visually the abstract jumble of autumn colored leaves stimulates my eyes and my brain.

I admit that it bothered me deeply that there was nothing that I could do for this Yellow Warbler as it has for the other injured birds I have seen throughout the years that I couldn’t help. [Four photos]

Yesterday morning I spent time focused on photographing Ruby-crowned Kinglets in a Wasatch Mountain Canyon in a thicket of hawthorn and chokecherry trees. [Six photos]

I’ve spent a lifetime appreciating these large geese and when I have lived in locations where Canada Geese weren’t present I have missed hearing them calling overhead or seeing them floating by on the water. [Two photos]

I photographed some of the cutest, fuzzy Bee Flies in the world this week nectaring on Rabbitbrush and Curlycup Gumweed in the Stansbury Mountains of the West Desert. [Six photos]

This time of the year male and female Spotted Towhees have finished raising their broods and their young are learning how to be on their own but they do look a touch ragged as they molt into their adult plumage. [Two photos]

It isn’t often that I am able to get close enough to a Woodhouse’s Scrub-Jay that my only option is to take closeup portraits of them yet that is precisely what happened to me two days ago.

I photographed a small flock of Wild Turkeys yesterday in the West Desert of Utah, specifically in a canyon of the Stansbury Mountains. I just never know when turkeys will show up and I am glad they did yesterday because I didn’t photograph many other birds. [Eight photos]
