  7. Hooded tinamou

    Hooded tinamou

    We were watching an antpitta at the feeder, when we suddenly noticed this tinamou had crept in and was watching the scene just a few meters behind! I was able to get a few shots of this tricky species before he wandered off into the forest.
  8. Paddyfield pipit

    Paddyfield pipit

    The ultimate challenge. One, yes, only one sharp picture of this species from hundreds of pictures of almost a dozen of these pipits there on that day. Very hot, crawling on my belly on dry pasture and rewarded with a plethora of burrs waiting to be removed after a close heat stroke for hours...

  15. Clark's Nutcracker

    Clark's Nutcracker

    Note its powerful woodpecker-like bill used to extract pine nuts which these striking black and gray corvids store up for the winter. This species is usually restricted to high elevation boreal forests in Western North America. This individual shows a dark accent mark behind its eye and around...
  16. Roseate spoonbill AND Snowy Egret Port St Lucie, Fl

    Roseate spoonbill AND Snowy Egret Port St Lucie, Fl

    I was out looking for a bird that I had seen earlier when it was raining. I came across these Spoonbills feeding and this other bird. I have checked Merlin and a couple of others and have not seen anything close to it. If you know please let me know. Was also posted in the Id forum and was given...

    Good lighting on this one. Today I have roofers re-roofing my house and believe it or not it's not raining.

  19. MOTTLED DUCK PORT ST LUCIE, FL

    MOTTLED DUCK PORT ST LUCIE, FL

    I shot this over the weekend also of this mama Mottled Duck watching over her babies as they were swimming around. She keeps them in the shallow part of the run off from one lake to another. One side has several Alligators and the other I think is clear of gators but I am not sure. For the most...
  20. Slaty-backed forktail

    Slaty-backed forktail

    Can you imagine how it feels, to sit on the ground under camo nets, near a river, with dense vegetation in the back; in a country with many snakes. A wonderful forktail surprise for me because I could take pictures of a White-crowned forktail, in a paid hide at Siriphum Waterfall in the NP, as well.
  21. Eastern Kingbird

    Eastern Kingbird

    Note the white tip to the tail. This is the most widespread of the kingbirds in North America and the only species to breed in most of the East. It is a long distance migrant with virtually the entire population wintering in the western Amazon Basin in South America. Unlike most songbirds...

  23. Boat-tailed Grackle

    Boat-tailed Grackle

    These showy blackbirds are common in wetlands along the upper Texas coast where they overlap with the similar Great-tailed Grackle which tends to replace it in agricultural and settled areas. This is a male. Formerly lumped with the Great-tailed Grackle, this species was split by the AOU in...
  24. Yellow-throated Vireo

    Yellow-throated Vireo

    Vireos are characterized by having a heavy shrike-like bill with a hook at the tip as seen here. Note yellow spectacles and unstreaked yellow throat and breast. This species tends to forage high in the canopy. It is an uncommon migrant in coastal Texas and this is the only one I was able to...
