This morning, between rain showers, I happened to look out the window and saw this interloper taking its leisure in the shade garden next to the patio.






Of course, She-Who-Rules-The-Yard [:-doggy] took exception to the intruder and barked furiously and bravely, albeit from a distance. She continued to bark long after the hapless creature had ambled back to the woods until I wacked her with a broom because she was driving me [:-crazy].

Nice photo.

I think so, it might be a juvenile. A couple years ago a juvenile Coopers Hawk or Red-Tailed hit our glass French Doors, and sat perched on the porch railing for about 4 days "until the bells stopped ringing." Apparently that's pretty typical behavior.

They keep the squirrel population in check (along with the foxes). If only they'd do something about the deer :-)

Off the coast on BC a few weeks ago.

Some of the many seals at Tracy Arm Alaska

Time to get this thread going again. I know it is a very common bird but not in a common location to most.

Either of those shots would make nice paintings.

I finally got a Snowy in flight. They like to sit in one spot for quite a while.

In the backyard. (was he in mine, or I in his?)

Dave, Thanks for the kind words, high praise indeed. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. An early morning fog had come in. It lifted a few minutes later.

Troels, Many tens of thousands of them winter over at the Bosque del Apache national wild life refuge about 80 miles south of Albuquerque. It is a photographers dream. In addition, there are thousands of snow geese and a variety of ducks.

Beautiful photo!! Sandhill cranes? We don't have them over here... having spent a large part of 2013 with cranes, I'm looking forward to their returning in early spring. Nothing gets my juices thawing quicker than the cranes trumpeting high up in the clouds. Great sieges soaring in the thermal uplift on their way north.

Wait a second! Is that a photo of sand cranes or a Troels Kirk painting???

Thought I'd jump in here. One of my hobbies is wild life photography. Just at the planning stages of my model railroad, but am learning a lot on this forum..

Thank you Dave. He just sat there watching us, I was hoping he would fly.

That owl photo is contest-worthy! Loved itů
