    Northern Shrike Project - We Need Your Help!

    Dear Wyoming Birders! I hope you are all well! We are UK based filmmakers and we are attempting to film Northern Shrike singing and hunting behavior in their winter territories. This is somewhat of an ambitious challenge as a) shrikes are not all that common, b) they don’t always sing, c) they...

    This one also was a bit far and is not as sharp as I'd like.

    This species is the heaviest bird native to North America, and on average is the largest living waterfowl species worldwide. It neared extirpation in the early 1900's, but due to active government (USA & Canada) programs of protection it has rebounded to its present total population of...

    Golden Eagle, Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA

    A pair of Golden Eagles was sitting in a dead tree about 75 m uphill from the road where the road exited the Lamar Valley northeastward. The long distance strained the capacity of my telephoto lens, so the image had to be severely cropped to produce the uploaded photo.
  15. Black-billed Magpie YELL-WINT SER

    Black-billed Magpie YELL-WINT SER

    This bird was hanging around the Wraith Falls Picnic Area, possibly to find some human left-overs, but there were very few human picnickers in mid-winter, so pickings were slim.

    Barrow's Goldeneye Group YELL-WINT SER

    Groups of immatures and females were present in many of the streams of Yellowstone National Park this winter. As the prior month had been unseasonably warm, there was much open water (lacking ice cover) for these diving ducks.

  20. Bald Eagle Adult YELL-WINT SER

    Bald Eagle Adult YELL-WINT SER

    This bird was perched on a dead tree beside the Madison River. It swooped down to capture fish in the river. The largely fast-flowing river was mostly ice free due to an unseasonably warm winter.

    Bald Eagle 2nd Yr Juv in Snow Squall YELL-WINT SER

  25. The Grand Tetons

    The Grand Tetons

    This spot is somewhat of an icon of the American west. This is Oxbow Bend in the Grand Tetons NP Wyoming. It can be a struggle to do something different at a much photographed spot like this. So I decided not to really try and go with the flow.
