    Sensitive wildlife camera to capture blue tits coming and going from nest

    Nuthatch food sharing at the nest hole

    I spotted this nest site a couple of weeks back and re-visited today on a walk, great to see the birds still building and as is the case with many photographs, great to be in the right place at the right time, for a food share. I'll try to keep an eye on the nest from here on.

    I was in a blind at the local lagoons when the swallow appeared. I liked the shallow perspective and the blur of the bird behind.

    Bald Eagle

    This is the female Bald Eagle from the nest I've been following since March 2008. I've been going back though some older captures and re-editing them. It was an amazing morning observing/photographing the adult pair work on their nest for the 2010 nesting season in which 3 male Bald Eagles...

    I have been observing/photographing a pair of American Bald Eagles since March 2008. This year the adults decided to build an entirely new nest close to their other two nests in the same area. This is the male as he brought back one of many sticks used to build the nest. Both adults do the...
