Juvenile Snail Kite ~ (Rostrhamus sociabilis)

A young Snail Kite comes in for a landing with a good sized Apple Snail in its beak at sunrise. Their long talons on display here make snatching large snails from the water much easier.Lots of Snail Kite photos coming - be warned!

Thanks for visiting!

Barred Owl ~ (Strix Varia)

A Barred Owl comes in for a landing on a low perch at Circle B. It is thrilling to watch, and listen, to these magnificent birds get active in the evening. I'm getting lots of practice shooting in low-light lately!

Thanks for visiting!

Snail Kite (Rostrhamus sociabilis) and Anhinga (Anhinga anhinga)

An Anhinga took exception to this Snail Kite perching on one of it's preferred places. Anhingas and Snail Kites seem to always be fussing with one another. They nest in similar spots, and have a penchant for the same perches.

Thanks for visiting!

Prothonotary Warbler ~ (Protonotaria citrea)

It's April, and the warblers are moving through the state! Fortunately, a few of them will decide to stop and stay a while such as this Prothonotary Warbler. These warblers nest each year at a park not far from my home. I was so happy to see this one singing on my visit a few days ago.

Thanks for visiting!

Burrowing Owl ~ (Athene cunicularia)

I was sitting quite a ways back from the Burrowing Owl burrow with my 500mm watching one of the owls getting active looking for food and hoping to get a flight capture. All of a sudden the hungry owl flies right at me, and plops down about 10 feet from my position. I know the distance because it was near the fringe of my minimum focal distance as I had to step backwards. It caught the pair of Lovebugs and then looked right up at me as I took the picture. The moment caught us both by surprise!

Thanks for visiting!
