I found this guy on the fields and grasslands of Montana. I drove south down MT-191 maybe 15 miles and turned east on a gravel road that led to fields and grazing land. Beyond that, the sage brush reappears, and it was here I found short-eared owls in the early morning. I was driving slowly looking for anything to photograph when I looked to my right and saw this guy perched on a post miles from anywhere. He stared straight at me, and I captured an image of an owl getting cloaked in early morning sunlight.

While spending a few days on the grasslands of upper Montana, I found this nighthawk roosting on barbed wire several miles down a gravel road away from US-2. While finding dozens of meadowlarks and several longspurs, I suddenly saw this bird on a wire of a different kind. I wonder how comfortable he was. And yes, he remained resting there for quite a while.

This bird lives on the West Coast from San Diego north to the entire west coast of Alaska. I found this adult on Gull Island just off the coast of Homer, AK. In the summer of 2019, Gull Island was inhabited by mostly Common Murres, but a few other species like the Horned and Tufted Puffins, the Pigeon Guillemot along with some Surf Birds and Black Turnstones also made this giant rock in the water their home.

I found this murrelet about forty-five minutes off the coast of Homer, Alaska. He was mixed in with Common Murres and some Marbled Murrelets. He was floating about with the fish he had caught, so the captain cut the engine and we bobbed in the water as I kneeled down to shoot across the surface of the water.

I have four or five pairs of these in my yard everyday. They nest in the trees nearby.
