  • Paul, Great series for these shore birds. Nickerson Beach is well known for an abundance of various species. Also, have you tried Jamaica Bay?
  • We have almost no birds in the wetlands here. Also, tomorrow an ex-hurricane, downgraded to a storm is about to hit somewhere in the area tomorrow with drenching rain. As I was leaving my doctor's ...
  • Richard, this is a great series of the Night Herons. Well done!
  • Thank you, Peter. The Hawk was quite a distance away and it is cropped. You are correct.
  • Nice series. Like them all, especially the Kingfishers.
  • No new images this week but these are a few from recent wetlands trips. Coopers Hawk. Little Blue Heron. Female Anhinga in Breeding Plumage. Purple Gallinule. Green Heron.
  • Replied in Great Egrets
    Great series of a Great bird.
  • Replied in Indian roller
    Wonderful capture! Well done.
  • Almost no birds in the wetlands. This is the worst time of year for bird photography in south Florida. The following images were made earlier this year. European Starling. Cattle Egret Nestling. Ne ...
  • Hi Judy, Very nice series of the Pelican and its troubles. Too bad it couldn't follow through on its catch.
  • Beautiful series, Peter. You are making good use of the new Canon equipment. Good work.
  • Replied in Egrets
    Brent, Great Egrets typically only produce one brood each season, but may replace a lost clutch in some instances. I believe the breeding season up north is much later than in south Florida. Milt
  • Bob, very nice reflection shot of the Stilt.
  • Peter, I love the Oystercatchers. Yes, the Egret images need quite a bit of work.
  • Replied in Egrets
    I like this series. When were these images made? Where are you located? I ask because these Egrets are in breeding plumage and it has been at least 2 months since all Egrets here in south Florida ...
  • I was finally able to get about an hour's time in the wetlands despite the 95 degree heat and torrential rains. However, there were almost no birds to be seen. One juvenile Tricolored Heron and ...
  • Replied in Rubies
    In my many years of photographing, I have made images of hummers only once. Nice shots with the E-510, my first camera when I went digital. They appear a bit dark. Perhaps some + EV would help.
  • Nice series. I especially like the chick being fed. This isn't seen every day.
  • Daily high temperatures coupled with daily heavy rains, along with very few birds in the local wetlands mean no photography this week. Here are a few from recent archives. Purple Gallinule Great ...
  • Kozmo, thanks for your very gracious remarks. My images are very far from being Smithsonian quality, very far from being so. But thanks again for your comments.
