Cool name for a wonderful bird with a bit of flourish.


Best of Nests

This hummingbird nest was the size of small teacup and it was very high up. The female bird never left the nest for long. A week or so later we saw two small beaks poking out. On our next visit a few days later the nest was empty.

They are almost always fishing. They are stealthy and fast on the attack.


Great Egret

The best thing about egrets are their feathery coats and wizard like appearance.

It’s not uncommon to see a Wood Duck couple foraging for food or just going for a paddle like these two.

You find these by their hammering sound. Beating away to find food or boring out a tree trunk for a nest.

Hard to shoot and capture the detail in their feathers but I try.

It’s always the eyes that stand out. The screech owl, like many owls, hunts at night and tries to sleep during the day. I can assure that the owl did not wake because of my presence.
