In the Air and On The Ground.

I just gotta show you some bird activity that's been going on around my place. So, I will share over at Wild Bird Wednesday

First of all, when I saw the Osprey headed for it's nest (now, you have to realize that this is a good distance away and I just have a standard camera with no attachable lens) I could have sworn that he was carrying a fish. With the help of my zoom lens and a tad of cropping, here it is... That's a fish, isn't it? A pretty good sized catch, I'd say. 



And, I saw this little fellow sitting in the grass across from my balcony. I believe he must be a juvenile Brown Thrasher for he sat there the longest time, like he wasn't sure what he was supposed to be doing. Then he made a short flight up into the tree. Am I right?



And, just look at this blue heron sneaking out from behind that reedy grass.  He thinks I can't see him but I can.


Hope you enjoy the birds in your neighborhood and elsewhere this week. Have a good one.

  1. Great photos! That first one is a nice capture for both you and the osprey. There is always crazy bird activity around my house. The other day was full of screaming crows. ~ Sharon

  4. You captured some really good photos of those birds!!! The bird carrying the fish reminded me of the time my daughter and I was driving to a bed and breakfast near Lake Erie! I huge bird flew right in front of our car carrying a huge fish!! We actually SAW him dip down to the water and then wing its way over the road with the fish - a BIG one! - in its mouth! I did not get a picture of this except in my mind!

  5. Nice captures, Latane. We watched an adult Brown Thrasher, looking very much like the one you have pictured here - except its mouth was open. Just sitting on the ground, all puffed out.

  6. Awesome bird photos, Mom! I have always been fascinated by the way an osprey catches its fish...the fish are actually facing the same direction as the bird, like it's on a ride in Disneyworld! :-) Only, sadly it isn't. It looks almost like there's a stick or something that got caught in the osprey's talons s well as the fish. Great shots of all the birds. That young brown thrasher is great, and I love the sneaky heron.

  7. I only want to throw firecrackers, but also throwing bombs. They threw firecrackers in order to attract the attention of others, confuse the enemy; throwing bombs is my real purpose. However, I can not tell you when I threw firecrackers, when throwing bombs. The game is to falsehoods, so just happy. If you feel pain in the game, it means you play the wrong.
