Baby Robin
You’ve got
to love baby robins; even more so when they are being fed by attentive parents
in your own garden. This little
one flicks about in my beech hedge as its mum and dad pick around my garden
fork for goodies. I have taken a proprietorial interest in ...

Dubai, Feb 2015
February continues apace with another life tick in the
glorious form of a Pharaoh Eagle-Owl . Actually, 2 if you don’t mind. The eBird invigilator for Dubai, Tommy Pederson (he of www.uaebirding.com fame), took me to a
reliable spot to the south of the city...

Central Park, New York, Oct 2014
A walk in New York’s Central Park always carries
my hopes for a long list of New World Warblers, but my luck and skill could not
combine to bring these hopes to reality today. It was a glorious day to be out
in the park however and was enhanced by a great l...

Itatiaia NP, RJ, Brazil.
Although the
drive seemed longer and much more hectic, the forest of Itatiaia NP hardly seemed to have changed at all since my last
visit nearly 8 years ago.  There was little purpose in stopping along the way to
pick up common birds, so I made a dash for i...

Montreal Snake
This photo is posted in an attempt to identify a snake from Angrignon Park in Montreal. If anyone has any ideas, please leave a comment. Thank you. The snake around 2 feet, but certainly less than 3 feet long. The pattern on the flank is consistent in a few...

Mount Auburn, Boston, Sept 2014
The rodents were keeping their heads
down at Mount Auburn Cemetery today and who could blame them with Red-tailed
Hawks everywhere it would seem. I was on the look-out for warblers, but had no
luck. The hawks however made it an enjoyable morning in Boston. ...

Sorry to have been away for so long. Sometimes birding and
blogging gets overtaken by grown up stuff. I am still able to get out while I
am away, but struggle to find time to review the photos and write up the trips
when I get back home. I fear that I will ...

Jardim Botanico, Sao Paulo, Sept 2014
This week’s
visit to Brazil started at the Jardim Botanico, but had to wait until the
afternoon before kick-off. Boat-billed
Flycatchers were evident here today as never before. The jardim
was full of excited children again on school trips. Keen to be out o...

Even familiar sites can hide little treasures and today I was treated to a Barred Owl on a boardwalk in a small area of swampy woodland to the west of Montlake Fill. Google Earth prefers the prettier name of Union Bay Natural...
