Birding Mt. Lemmon – Rose Canyon Lake

Posted Tuesday 4th June 2013 at 18:32 by hotspot birding
After my early morning success at Bear Canyon Picnic area I decided to head up to Rose Canyon Lake. I often see sightings on lists for many birds I need at Rose Canyon Lake which helped to justify the $9 entrance fee. The Rose Canyon Lake entrance is a left hand turn about 5 miles north of the Bear Canyon Picnic area. It is at over 7000' in elevation. The lake surrounded by pine trees, rocks and water make it an ideal habitat for many of our Arizona mountain dwellers.
I pulled into the Rose...

Ospreys at Hanningfield Reservoir

Posted Saturday 10th May 2014 at 18:59 by vangerover
After a heavy night out celebrating my daughter's birthday, it was prudent to have a lay in this morning. Making some tea about 1030 I noted on Birdguides that an Osprey had been seen at Hanningfield for the second day running!!

Anyway I was on site at 1115 but the reserve staff didn't know anything about it. The plan was to check each hide to see if anyone knew about an Osprey. Opening the door to the first hide, anyone know anything about an Osprey? Yeah, we're on it now!!!

Photographing vultures in Bulgaria

Posted Friday 10th October 2014 at 12:36 by dancho_hristov

Birds of prey are difficult to photograph. They are really smart and wouldn’t allow someone getting into the hide under their sight. That’s why we had to get up early and sneak into the hide in the dark. To avoid the early start we decided to spend the night in the vicinity of one of the vulture photography hides in the Eastern Rhodope mountains in Bulgaria. This reduced the time for traveling and we had an hour extra sleep in the morning before the photography session.The evening before the photography...
