Here he or his companion is in a different tree. We hear the owls every night, hooting and sort of cackling. Their hoots make Moxie’s fur stand on end. 13 months ago
I photographed this giant fellow high in a big tree behind our house. He had been hooting pretty loudly to his friends & neighbors, some of whom answered in kind. He didn’t seem to mind me taking pictures with my inexpensive Canon telefoto lense far below from our side of our chain link fence.
Online later, I learned that barred owls, often called hoot owls, are moving into older suburbs like ours that are full of older mature trees. They’re thriving here. They feed on other birds, squirrels, opossums, rabbits and so on. I love the look and sound of them, but I can’t help but worry that one will mistake our small terrier for a rabbit one day, who now should only go outside with human supervision I think, despite the fact that she likes to go out some five times a night. 13 months ago
At least I think it’s a chickadee. (nope I was wrong, it’s a tufted titmouse. See Comments. 14 months ago
I love cardinals best. I put out safflower seeds to attract them. 14 months ago
an unsuspecting finch for getting too close to the peanuts, probably. 14 months ago
These birds are around for about a month each spring before moving out to the prairie. 14 months ago
Jays are pretty standoffish most of the time, especially lately with the clouds of starlings about. But they’ll go anywhere for peanuts. 14 months ago
This fellow used to come by every afternoon when there were peanuts to be had. 14 months ago
our backyard. This fellow is many times bigger than the cardinals, blue jays, starlings & woodpeckers I’m used to seeing in this scrub tree. 14 months ago
He killed the squirrel to the left and flew off with it. This was on Christmas Day a few months ago. I had my camera handy and couldn’t resist taking a picture, though later I felt bad for the squirrel. 14 months ago
my bird feeders in the backyard. I miss the birds, miss taking pics of them especially, but the doves & squirrels & bunnies that the bird food attracted were also attracting hawks & since our puppy weighs less than 10 pounds & is potentially a target, I felt I had no choice.
My mom, a true bird lover, will visit in a few months for a short time. Maybe I’ll put the feeder back up for the duration of her visit. 14 months ago
This guy was waiting for any of 200,000 geese to get too close. He was perched atop a cottonwood at a nearby wetlands preserve, too far away for me to capture in much clarity. 17 months ago
