A few more things from Days 1-4
I left out a few things from days 1-4 that I wanted to share, and then I'll get to Sanibel, which was like a different world, simply because it wasn't cloudy or raining. Here's one I missed posting yesterday taken at Lovers Key State Park- a Wilson's Plover...
Here's one I missed posting yesterday taken at Lovers Key State Park- a Wilson's Plover, which was a first sighting for me. There intermediate in size between the much smaller piping and snowy plovers (they're coming) and the Black-bellied Plover, which is giant. I observed three of these birds ...

I'm Back from Rainy Florida
Tamiami Trail, near Copeland, Florida I spent five days last week exploring southwest Florida. Unlike most Florida January weeks, I experienced quite the deluge, with over four inches of rain in a 48 a period.  I managed to make most of my time that it wasn...
I spent five days last week exploring southwest Florida. Unlike most Florida January weeks, I experienced quite the deluge, with over four inches of rain in a 48 a period. I managed to make most of my time that it wasn't raining, photographing many species of birds.

Great color. Makes me miss living in a smaller town. Don't get hose views on the city.

Blue Jays and Crows
The Blue Jays and Crows. It's interesting how I don't photograph our common birds very often. Crows, which I see almost every day, are just not very well covered in my archives.  I should have the best photos of the birds that are the most common.  But some...
The Blue Jays and Crows. It's interesting how I don't photograph our common birds very often. Crows, which I see almost every day, are just not very well covered in my archives. I should have the best photos of the birds that are the most common. But sometimes, that just isn't the case.

The Hummingbirds
My hummingbird images come not from Ohio, but Colorado and Maine.  Just two species.  The broad-tailed just happened to be perched on a branch where I set up my camera for a session of sunrise photography, as seen in the first two images here . We haven't b...
My hummingbird images come not from Ohio, but Colorado and Maine. Just two species. The broad-tailed just happened to be perched on a branch where I set up my camera for a session of sunrise photography, as seen in the first two images here. We haven't been to Colorado since 2011.

Gnatcathers, American Dipper, and Kinglets
This is a group that I surely need to photograph more.  I added the Golden-crowned Kinglet photos two weekends ago after an encounter at Hoover Nature Preserve.  My photo of the American Dipper was back in the 5 megapixel Kodak point and shoot days (It was ...

Southwest Florida Bird Highlights - The First Four Days
With the crazy El Nino weather, my time in Florida, five days including travel days, all three of my full days had rain, clouds, and seasonably cool temperatures.  But I can't complain.  Yes, I wasn't prepared for ankle to knee high water on several of the ...

Yes, I wasn't prepared for ankle to knee high water on several of the trails I visited, but that didn't stop me ...

Hoover Reservoir Spillway Wood Duck
I've updoaded this image at 2000 pixels wide.  Click for a much larger image.  Yesterday afternoon, I zipped down to the spillway below Hoover Reservoir.  You're looking at the drinking water for a major chunk of the Columbus area.  It also happens to be a ...
Yesterday afternoon, I zipped down to the spillway below Hoover Reservoir. You're looking at the drinking water for a major chunk of the Columbus area. It also happens to be a place where waterfowl gather when much of the reservoir is frozen. While yesterday's temps reached above freezing, ...

Vultures and Hawks
Doesn't everyone love the birds of prey?  Ok, maybe not the vultures, but there's something special about the soaring flight of a hawk. I'm hoping to catch a glimpse of the Snail Kite next week in Everglades National Park.  And if I'm lucky, maybe even a ph...

Gruiformes- Gallinules, Coots, Rails and Cranes
An interesting group, certainly under represented in my photographs.  The Purple Gallinule and Limpkin will targets during my upcoming trip to Southwest Florida.  The Clapper rail shots are from South Carolina.  They're a blast to watch as they dart across ...
