Ducks do that as a means of protection.


Whiskers

If my whiskers acted like this redstart’s whiskers, I would do something about it.


Not Mean Spirited

Unless we practice anthropomorphism, I doubt this bird is as angry as it looks.


Standing on One Leg

I tried it. If it was a contest the duck would win.

Mallard couples hanging out together is not unusual.

I look forward to the day when I can capture a duck landing facing me, meanwhile this will do.

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


Best of Nests

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

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.


Green Heron

Scowling after his efforts at fishing were foiled.


Great Blue Heron

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.


Black-crowned Night Heron

They are known to stand their ground.


Wood Ducks

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


Pileated Woodpecker

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


Turkey Vulture

Not the prettiest of birds but still in its own way majestic.


Sparrow

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