These big guys are so gorgeous.
Osprey Fish for Dinner
Osprey with Fish
Another osprey, in another location - Bayou Lacombe. These birds are majestic at flight.
Fishing for Food
He brought this to the nest for food.
This big guy did not like me photographing him eating his huge fish.
Spotted this guy on our recent return trip through the Bayou - stunning! Hopefully, they have decided to return to our area after being dissuaded by human activities (see eagle posting below).
Bald Eagle Landing
Resting Bald Eagle
This huge bird just sat there while we all were in awe, totally unfazed at all the attention. It was a rare and wonderful treat to see this a few years ago. There used to be a nest near us, but after some neighbors set off a huge fireworks display nearby, they moved away. We do impact our world with our activities besides with humans and need to be more mindful of these activities, on so many levels.
In pilings on Lake Pontchartrain.
I love the look on the watchful pelican, as if he is saying "what ARE you doing?!"
Glorious in spring!
Kingfisher at rest
Such an oddity to see these little birds at rest. Most of the time they are flitting and chirping all over the bayou!
Brown Booby in Lake Pontchartrain
When I asked for my friends' help in identifying this bird, and they told me "brown booby", I thought they were messing with me. But they were not! Indeed, it also was an unusual sighting in Lake Pontchartrain back in 2014 when I took this photograph, but now I hear that they are being sighted elsewhere.
I find these birds to be very shy, but this one landed on our little tree and just watched me for awhile. They are so pretty.
A stunning autumn day for birdwatching, with this great blue heron bristling at the passing white heron!
Great Blue Heron in Flight
They may look ungainly in flight, but they are quite impressive!
These little birds are amazing to watch. I wish I had their energy!
Spotted on Grand Isle during the Migratory Bird Festival, April2018
This coyote was in a field “playing” with a mouse, which it finally caught.
Doesn’t he look like he’s sticking out his tongue?
He crossed the river to confront the interloper.
This big guy was alerting his herd to danger - what a great sound!
Quiet Elk in Yellowstone
This big guy sat down in the dust of the late afternoon, quietly ignoring all of us avid photographers imploring him to turn around. Quite the character!
