    I knew my little pocket camera was focusing on tree branches, proud of myself for resisting the temptation to try for a better pic... It's hard! ;-)

    I've become a massive bird geek over the last year or so, these certainly aren't one of our more special examples, definitely outshined by their beautiful yellow tailed black cousins, but i thought it was a cool pic, maximum sandwich defense!

    I think this guy stays in the same Pond all the time. I caught a video of him, he was watching me carefully the closer I got, I pushed record after taking a picture and watched him open his wings and fly away.
    It was cool. 20170701_192605.jpg

    This is a little hard to make out, but it's the best picture I've gotten of this particular behavior because it's the only picture I've ever gotten. This is one of my favorite birds: a female killdeer, Charadrias vociferus, miming a broken wing in order to get me (the potential predator) to chase her as she leads me away from her nest. I've always been fascinated with this; I saw my first one at maybe age twelve or thirteen. This bird deserved an Oscar, she'd lean on one wing and then the other, then hop off another six feet and make sure I was following before repeating.

    I used to see that all the time when I was working on the old slag roofs factories had before going rubber or hot rolled. The birds would lay their eggs right on the stones. You always knew when you were by the bird's nest when you saw the Killdeer running across the roof and feigning the broken wing.

    This guy is fattening himself up right now.
    I shot a red squirrel off that very bump a couple days ago.

    This little guy came to visit us in the backyard for a little while yesterday. I thought maybe he had injured his wing, but then he seemed determined to get into the house, and kept looking at and flying into the windows. I figured he was confused by the reflection in the windows, so we closed the curtains and he soon flew away. It was pretty cool to see him up close for so long. :)

    Caught this little guy just a bit ago trying to cross the road. Had time enough to fire up the cell phone. deer.jpg He was not going to let some puny vehicle stop him. Crossed right behind me as soon as I pulled away. Can you say RUT?

    This guy modeled for me for 15 min, fearlessly popping out of the rock wall by my shop... then ran off with what looked like a small bird...

    Seagull hunting the mud flats during a receding tide. These guys deserve more credit than they get. Tough, resilient, and graceful birds.
