Very nice Cooper's hawk shot, Mike. You captured this guy without any branches in the way. And that ain't easy to do.:-)

Thanks Mike! I had to stand in muck up to my ankles.

Thank you very much, Shalu
Killer shots of these two avocets, Shalu. The low angle really adds so much.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Love this shot, Shalu. That is definitely a neat pose. Can't say that I've ever seen it before. But then again, I've never seen them mate.

One of the more difficult birds to get a shot of, at least for me anyways :-)

Super nice shot, Matt! Such a pretty warbler. It looks like he caught himself a little skipper (butterfly).


Thank you for the butterfly ID, I was wondering what he'd snatched. Normally these Warblers go after these really small, white/blue moths that they shake loose from the undersides of leaves; this Skipper is the largest meal I've seen one get yet.

Good one, Mike. Nice and clear capture of the Killdeer in its environment.

Great pose, mid stride! Adds a nice dynamic to your shot, Bill.

Cactus Wren...

Your Cactus Wren shots are excellent, Tom. Your work is elevating my interest in these birds, I definitely want to see one in person now!
