Old GalleriesPlease excuse the clutter, I am in the process of migrating my old photo galleries because the program I was using is no longer working well.

For the new galleries look on the sidebar and for the old click the button. There are images in these galleries that do not appear on the old galleries; for instance my old galleries do not have the most recent images or they might not have bird species I had not included there like the Spotted Towhees.

I have moved all of the wildlife, miscellaneous, flower and tree images. I am currently working on moving my bird images to the new galleries.Old Galleries

I am itching to get back out in the field with Swainson's Hawks partly because they are handsome raptors and partly because by now there might be some young that have fledged.

As we go into a holiday weekend filled with loud noises and flashes of fireworks I wanted to share something more peaceful, a simple image of a Willet walking on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico.

On an extremely hot April day I was out on Egmont Key for a Florida Master Naturalist class and from a distance I thought I saw some Black Skimmers and Least Terns resting on a beach but they turned out to be decoys.

I am always happy to photograph Swainson's Hawks no matter where I find them so I was pleased to find this one perched on a lichen covered rock yesterday in Box Elder County, Utah.

The heat of summer has turned the green grasses brown on Antelope Island State Park so I thought I'd share some of the "brown birds" I photographed there yesterday.

A Snowy View of Antelope Island State Park’s Mountains to Cool Off on a Hot June Day

I am going to brave the heat today and head to Antelope Island State Park to see if there are any birds around that aren't hiding in the shade or panting with their bills open.
