**** Weekly Wildlife Thread 4-5 to 4-10 ****
3 months ago

Nesting has begun in my area, perhaps yours, too. Not many pics are cuter than little nestlings with their big mouths wide open begging for food. It's so tempting to get closer and closer for a great shot. But did you know that you may be putting them in danger of abandonment or predation? Before attempting to take nest and nestling shots, please do some reading on the matter. Here's a good place to start:

It's Saturday where some of you live, so we all can post! Common or rare, pretty or not, let's see what you've got!

To post your pics, please reply to THIS post and change the title. Otherwise, in threaded mode, your post will appear to be a comment to another's post. We don't want to overlook your pics! Threaded mode lists posts in a hierarchy which is ideal for viewing threads like this one.

Try to limit pics to three or so and identify subjects if possible. It would be nice if you would provide location and other info others might find interesting. And do comment on others' pics if so moved. Everyone is welcome to participate with any camera, any time. Lurkers and new members please join in.

When out viewing and photographing wildlife, I want all of you to be safe. I also want the wildlife to remain safe and minimally impacted by our presence.
