Very nicely done shot, Bob.

Wonderful, sharp shot of the Phoebe, Melissa. And you even caught him dinning. Well done.

That is a bummer! We have Starlings that chase everything away here.

Wonderful close-up shots...so nice and sharp.

Thanks...these are cropped severely since it was too close for a full body shot.

Brilliant. If No 4 is that good, No 1 would be unbelievably awesome.
Really nice.

I saw something really odd. This time, the baby grebe REFUSED to eat the fish offered by its parent. The parent tried many times, the baby just would not eat it! I have never seen this before.

Upper east TN. Google Roan Mountain for the area.
We weren't going to get hit with big winds or anything, just 7 more days of rain and we live with rain 300+ days a year...so used it
as an excuse to hop in the camper and head west. Turns out we only got 2 inches=nothing. We got 15 inches in May which is normal.
It's kinda like living in the PNW without Mt. Rainier or Mt. Hood :(

Our rain season starts October 1st, since last October 1st I have recorded only 1.9" of rain for the whole year at my house.
You could send a little rain out to California, we could use it.
