This is an incredibly nice shot, Phil. The setting is outstanding...very a appealing!

Thanks Mike. I really like that one too. It's almost like looking thru a window.

As much as I'd love to take credit, this one was Theresa's too. Lol!

Ever wonder what a GBH's ear looks like? :-)

Thanks Mike and plop their eggs on the side of a busy road.:lol:

Ha, ha...I've always commented to friends, how killdeer seem to pick the worst places to make their nests. And yet, as a species they are surviving quite well.:-)

Lovely capture of the blackbird, Richard! I always love the setting of old wood covered with lichens. To me it really looks appealing.

Wonderful shot, Tom! I surely hope you were shooting in silent shutter mode so as not to wake-up this snoozing Inca dove.:-P

Thanks Mike. I hesitate to post ferals as I call them :-)
They are beautiful birds though and it's not their fault someone imported them in the 1850's!
Thankfully the natives seem to keep them in check and have actually declined here since we arrived in '87.
