    Singing House Finches and a Great Horned Owl Family

    I had an amazing day in southern British Columbia as I got to film many singing house finches and then saw a mama great horned owl and her 3 fledged, but still fluffy, owlets. A telephoto lens was used and I was able to observe the family for an entire morning resting in the same tree.

    Making electricity poles safer for birds

    I recently saw a presentation that electrocution on electricity poles is the major reason of deaths of Bald Ibis in Europe. Electrocution kills also White Storks, all birds of prey, owls, and many other bird species. I realized that it is a direct bird protection which has obvious emotional...

    Looking For Breakfast

    Many people believe owls are strictly nocturnal. But this beautiful Barred Owl was actively hunting yesterday morning at 9:00 AM and was kind enough to allow me a few good shots before it decided to fly off.
