Big birds, little birds, plain brown or black birds and one of startling color!

4-year-old bald eagle with a small fish for a pre-brunch appetizer!


The tiny brown-headed nuthatch has snagged one of her favorite sources of protein:

a spider from the web below her.


This brilliantly yellow bird is a prothonotary warbler.

They come for the summer nesting season.


A northern rough-winged swallow:

a tiny speed demon that loves to consume flying insects such as mosquitos.


There is WAY more branch here than osprey!

I would have loved to have been able to see him get it into his nest.


Closeup of a beautiful black vulture.

I really appreciate their contributions to the cleanup around the lake.

Isn’t the spider’s spangle a delightful addition to these calico asters?
