Barred Owl (Strix varia)

Walking around a local park yesterday looking for spring migrants and was extremely surprised to find a Barred Owl sitting at eye level right off the boardwalk of the park! I had to wait 30 minutes to get a shot with both eyes open. Lots of shots with one eye ;)

Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens)

In the years I've been photographing birds, this is one species, and a common one at that, that I'm just not able to get decent shots of. This guy was kind enough to take a small break on a decent perch. Now, if only there had been some nicer lighting. . . . next time.

Great Egret (Ardea Alba)
This egret chick was determined to climb out of the nest, but something about the look on mom's face tells me she wasn't too happy about that!

Tufted Titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor)

I just love this species so much. They're so fun to watch and so full of spunk and personality. Right now spring is in the air and they are pairing up. Bring on the babies!! (let me clarify: bird babies!)
