Female American Redstart

I think That I have made my last trip out to the bay to capture this years migratory birds.  Th over growth of the vegetation is making it a real challenge to isolate any of these small warblers.  Yesterday was quite windy so the birds were lower in the branches.  I was able to capture […]

Elusive Avian Activity

Finishing up my week photographing the bird migration in Northwest Ohio, I found a cool and windy morning out by Lake Erie.  The boardwalk was still packed with people from Birders to Photographers and movement along the walk was a bit restricted.  What really caught my eye was the fact that as a result of […]

The Biggest Week

Here we are in the Biggest week in American Birding.  I have been spending some time out at Magee Marsh where many of the migratory birds congregate prior to making the long trek across Lake Erie on their way to Canada.  There are many species of birds coming through.  As many of our friends here […]

24 Days and Counting!

24 days and counting until the Biggest Week in American Birding kicks off in Northwest Ohio.  I took a chance last weekend and traveled to Magee Marsh along the coast of Lake Erie to see if any of the migratory birds had arrived.  I wasn’t alone on the Boardwalk but the birds were few and […]

Eagles Gallery

I recently updated my Eagles Gallery on my website and made it one of the featured galleries for the month of March.  The images in this gallery were taken on a trip to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.  Many of these flight photos were taken from a moving boat. The challenge was hand holding a […]

Cardinal Landscape

Here is another image from our recent trip to the Lake House.  Our trees were populated with many cardinals and blue jays.  I was able to conceal myself behind one of our large trees and watch the activity in the woods next to our property.  The Male Cardinals were quite active and provided me with […]

Northern Woodpecker

Took a little time off this weekend to check in at the lake house.  In spite of the cold weather we did have a little bit of a warming spell and I had an opportunity to observe some bird activity on the property adjacent to ours.  I watched as this Northern Woodpecker was feasting away […]
