The flood waters are finally falling here in SC and the mosquitos are having a population boom. They're thick all day long, at night it's not an option to go outdoors fo long. Here's a Barred Owl watching quietly in an oak tree.

All beautiful shots, David. I particularly like #1 because of the composition. The egret has a natural frame around him that really makes the shot look very cool.

The usual suspects. Cardinals and Catbirds.

I miss the Carolina(s) coastal region and the plethora of amazing bird species :cry:

Both are nice shots Matt...sharp and well captured. I'm curious; what does the cardinal have in it's beak?

A double post Matt...Thanks. :-P Now you're starting to do what I do all the time. I call them senior moments. In your case, I'm sure it was simply a computer glitch.  :p :lol:

You know what it was.. I tried to post while I was walking out of my house to go birding this morning, and my phone went from WiFi to data as I went out of range. I was wondering why it said my post failed, and I had to send it again :p

Great capture Mike, it's a great day when you get a Kingfisher in the viewfinder.

Thank you very much, Steve. You are so right, "it's a great day when you get a Kingfisher in the viewfinder." For whatever reason, they've been so difficult for me to get.

Oh my gosh Matt. That's the best excuse I've ever heard. :-P Why have I not thought of that one? :p

Sorry Matt, I don't mean to have fun at your expense. I just couldn't help myself. It's definitely your turn to slam me now.

She’s eating a Porcelain Berry, an invasive vine that produces colorful blue and purple berries in the fall.

Your Blue Jays are very pretty birds.
Are they common birds?

I don't know about in his area, but they are very common in my part of the country, the southeastern part of the United States.

They don't eat directly from bird feeders that often, but mine will eat the woodpecker food and will eat under the bird feeders. I guess they like sunflower seed shells after the other birds open them up.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Very nice! The exposure is just right, and the details are sharp!

It may just be my monitor, but there's some line/artifacts in the upper left corner. Anyone else seeing them?

Thank you for your comments. I see what you mean about the artifacts--some thin lines in the upper left corner. I'm sorry to say my eyesight isn't very good. If I'd seen them I would have cloned them out or else used the healing brush in Photoshop to get rid of them. I'll remove them from my computer copy. Thanks again. Bob
