Checked out a Wildlife Refuge a little ways from our house yesterday. We didn't see much, but we managed to come across a large flock of Red-winged blackbirds as we were leaving.

Excellent shot Mike. Love the cranes and planning a trip in November to photo whooping cranes and the sandhills.

Thank you for the nice compliment, Bill. The cranes are so much fun to photograph, especially in flight. I'm always trying to get them in small groups of tight formations. It makes for some very nice images. I hope your trip in November goes really well.

Ahhh you did it, Shalu. Heavy cropping or not, those are nice shots. I'll take peregrines any way I can get them. :-)

Will, you may be familiar with The Skimmer, out of Rockport: https://www.whoopingcr​anetour.com/ (external link)

I highly recommend their morning cruise for Whooping Cranes. Captain Tommy is a fantastic birding guide, with uncanny vision. My wife and I have taken this cruise four different years, I never came home without Wall Hangers.

Thank you very much, Mike! I believe the pair of peregrines are permanent residents around the pond, so I hope to get better pictures of them soon.

The fish is small for an osprey, but I guess the pond is too shallow now to have bigger fish there.

Very impressive shot, Shalu. You surely have been nailing those osprey with fish shots. Great work.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
