This American Kestrel is a real celebrity! I was following him and other two photographers were following him too. At some point there were three of us standing in a crescent formation near the small tree he perched on. We were waiting for him to do something and he didn't disappoint us. He took off and hovered for a few seconds.

Finally..I got a shot of this bittern flying...been seeing him around the wetlands last week or so..but hadn't been able to get him in flight til the other day...

American Avocet, Manitou Lake, Colorado


From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology:


With its elegant profile and striking coloration, the American Avocet is unique among North American birds. In summer it can be found in temporary and unpredictable wetlands across western North America where it swings its long upturned bill through the shallow water to catch small invertebrates.


There's a wild, wild whisper

Blowin' in the wind

Callin' out my name like a long lost friend

Oh I miss those days as the years go by

Oh nothing's sweeter than summertime

And American honey

The American lotus (Nelumbo lutea) is sometimes mistaken for a water lily, but it has two main differences. One is the seed pod, which is shaped a bit like a space capsule. The other difference is the leaf shape. Water lilies are not completely round; they have a slit. The American Lotus has big round (or roundish) leaves with no slit. Some are a foot across.

Graceful little shorebirds, this one in its breeding plumage. The American Avocets are always fun to click. Recurvirostra americana

Probably the Dad, over in the Dad tree watching the two babies. Still praying for their Mama!

I hope everyone enjoys this image! :D

I went on this Creation adventure specifically because I was looking for a life bird that was reported there. This is also a drive through place, and with my health, that's about all I can do.


But I was so hoping for American White Pelicans also ... and oh yes! There were several hundred. One of my favorites and I hadn't barely seen any. They are wintering birds for us here in Central Florida.

Leaving the marsh not long after the feeding was finished. There can be quite a few at times, but an hour later you would never know they had been there..
