Off to the side of this pic, one of the adult coots is coming in fast to round up the gang into safety. The eagle made a third pass but all ended well for this coot family.

A murder of crows heading straight into the tree I was beneath. I looked up and saw the hawk they were chasing. Managed to get two clicks off.

Adults homework... Challenges of May, task 25

大人の宿題 お題②「slow shutter/less 80」

----------------------------------------------------------------------

疾走感が足りませんが、シャッタースピードを遅くして、顔にピンを合わせるのは結構大変でした。連写機能をフル活用です。追尾機能というのは素晴らしいですね。

It was easy ID as the parents were coming up and feeding it. (No good pics of that of course)

Mallard couple with chicks was peacefully enjoying day when another drake approached. To my surprise the hen took after him with serious intent.

This is the same bird I waited patiently for to fly. These swallows don't seem to rest much.

Like other phoebes, the Say’s Phoebe is seemingly undaunted by people and often nests on buildings. These open-country birds have cinnamon-washed underparts and a rather gentle expression. They sally from low perches to snatch insects in midair or pounce on them on the ground. Say’s Phoebes often pump their tails while perched on a wire, fence post, or low bush. They breed farther north than any other flycatcher and are seemingly limited only by the lack of nest sites.

 

Say’s Phoebes really blend into their desert surroundings despite their cinnamon-washed bellies. They can be quite vocal at times which helps locate them, but at other times they are quiet and can easily go undetected. Listen for a clear, slurred whistle and a burry, hiccupping note. Keep your eyes low to the ground and watch for quick movements from low shrubs as they sally out to grab an insect or two. Look for them perched on top of low shrubs or fence posts. During the breeding season, they may be found around buildings; you may even be able to spot a nest under an eave.

After taking a few clicks I wanted to change my shutter speed and exposure, when I brought the camera up to shoot again the osprey was flying straight at me, then I noticed that an adult bald eagle was chasing it. They did some aerial maneuvers but the eagle ended up with the fish. I was just happy to see the osprey unharmed.
