    What'd you do? Shoot him from a cannon? Interesting pose!

    Black Chinned Hummingbird - Archilochus alexandri

    A hummingbird discovered my bottlebrush plant. The ID of Black Chinned H'bird is from the Merlin Bird Application. I took a photo of the bird perched and wings when folded come even with the tail feathers, where a ruby throated Hummer would have noticeable longer appearing wings.

    Love it, especially the way the one has its head cocked watching you.

    Comment by 'GerryHerd' in media 'SNOWY EGRET OR MAYBE GREAT EGRET PORT ST LUCIE, FL'

    My guess would be little blue heron. They start white feathers with dark bill , then go through a splotchy transition to blue feathers as adult.

    Beautiful lighting and pose. The tones on the plant go well with the bird’s colors. Well done.

    Red Bellied Woodpeckers (melanerpes carolinus)

    Male parent and juvenile red-bellied woodpeckers. They were both feeding on suet on the side of the tree, and then the juvenile went into "feed me" mode.

    Reflecting on Hummingbirds...(Archilochus colubris)

    Ruby throated Hummingbird. The two shots are of the same bird, taken about 1 second apart. The bird turning his head a fraction of an inch into the direction of the morning sun made the difference in the color difference in his red 'necklace' and to a lesser extent the green feather color on...

    Comment by 'GerryHerd' in media 'Starling'

    Nice detail. There are huge flocks of starlings over here in the US. The story of how they got here is about 150 years ago somebody thought it would be good if Americans could have a chance to see all the birds mentioned in Shakespeare’s writings. So, he turned a bunch, including starlings...

    You caught the delicate colors around the eye and breast very well.

    Nest built - no eggs

    It doesn’t sound abnormal. I “hosted” a bluebird pair and I recall a lot of scouting, about a week of nesting materials being brought in, another week or two of frequent short visits (with the male sometimes bringing food to her on a nearby branch). I’m not sure when the eggs were laid. There...
