Hooded Oriole

The last few days there has been a young and very vocal male Hooded Oriole hanging around the house.  Lucky for me he was not terribly camera shy.

Hoot Hoot Again

I had just mentionoed to my wife that it had been awhile since I had heard our local owls hooting.  She came back inside and said "well, thay're out there now."  So I grabbed the scope and managed a few shots in the fading light.

Prairie Dog

Recently took a trip to Arizona and New Mexico.  Took the scope, but the focus was not on birding.  I did manage to capture some Prairie Dogs, however.


While on a recent outing to Lake Los Carneros, I was lucky to come across some cute and very cooperative Mallard ducklings.
