Fine set, Morris but that last one is my favorite because it is so different.

Great series Morris....by the way, did you manage to get any shots of Rockefeller the Saw-whet?

Very nice series, Morris.  I don't know much about this bird, but the photos are interesting, particularly the last one.

Thank you Dave,

In the last it's great that the eye just came up and the inner eyelid is still closed

Thank you Martin,

I tend to avoid chasing events like that, particularly when it would put my health at risk.

Thank you Craig,

I've learned a lot about them since I started photographing them about 10 years ago.
