He sat there alone and called his mother. He could not fly and did not scare to me. After one and a half hours of our joint time, he took all his strength and flew away. It was such a little miracle to me ...

Fantail flycatcher from another angle. Shows off the fan rather well.

These birds were nesting along the cliffside next to the Common Murres, and across from the Gannet rock. The slot on the cliffs was the size of the bird plus room for maybe one or two eggs. I guess when you can fly, you aren't scared of heights.

An adult bird showing its beautiful breeding plumage. In the fall when I had all my past sightings they always had drab looking appearance. Ashbridges Bay Park, Toronto, Ontario.

Some sort of water bird

Same bird, different pose. This taken just before he flew off, to who knows where.


Another bird image I captured yesterday.....

This little guy kept me company for a little while - they tend to have a curious nature; this allowed me the chance to get this nice close up of him!

Hope you like it - best viewed Large on Black!

I greatly appreciate any comments, views or favorites for this or any of my images - thank you!!!

Have a wonderful day and week everyone!

The Woodbine beach area in Ashbirdge's Bay Park has been flooded for a while due to high water level in Lake Ontario. This created a nice stop over spot for Shorebirds including this endangered Piping Plover. This year there's been quite a few sightings of this beauty along the lake - they are probably looking for a suitable beach area to nest. I missed the one that showed up there on Monday; however, when a different one was reported two days later I didn't want to miss the opportunity. Experts are still trying to find more info on this bird from all the bands that it is adoring on its legs. Toronto, Ontario

Today we've got close to two inches of rain. When it stops the poor little birds flock to the feeders. They are for sure WET.

The Rock Pigeons are back for their yearly spring stop. Very shy birds. But this one was more curious than than the others


Taken at the Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve, where is very close to the town centre. A great place to hang around when you want some wildlife experience but don't have a chance to go anywhere too far!

Common bird in Southeast Asia. This confusing named bird was formerly classified as Thrush family (Turdidae), but comes under Old World flycatcher family (Muscicapidae) nowadays. And this species has a Japanese name though they don't occur in Japan. I don't know why they called "four seasons bird" in Japanese.

The Eurasian oystercatcher (Haematopus ostralegus) also known as the common pied oystercatcher, or palaearctic oystercatcher,[2] or (in Europe) just oystercatcher, is a wader in the oystercatcher bird family Haematopodidae. It is the most widespread of the oystercatchers, with three races breeding in western Europe, central Eurasia, Kamchatka, China, and the western coast of Korea. No other oystercatcher occurs within this area.


This oystercatcher is the national bird of the Faroe Islands. / from Wikipedia

This beautiful oystercatcher was watching us while sitting so close next to us - but we needed minutes until we saw him. Bird Watching in another direction. ;-D

House Sparrow collecting nesting material already. Not the best composition but sometimes is all you have. Just loved to see this bird with some sort of straw.

You would think such a brightly color bird would be easy to get a shot of but he manages to evade my camera most of the time. This shot was taken earlier this year along the Mexican border where birds were being fed giving me a chance.

Sometimes if you sit still birds will come very close. Sometimes they come too close !

Black beauty from Nilgiri hills

This cactus wren thought he was the bird about town, standing atop the cactus crowing like the town crier. This is our Arizona state bird. Impressive to me how they can just land on those needles with no apparent discomfort.

Thanks to everyone who takes time to comment, and fave my photo.




I've always had this funny feeling about reality. It just seems very feeble to me sometimes. It doesn't seem to have the substantiality that it's suppose to have.

the geek behind the curtain: shot from this afternoon, hanging out with little E, drinking green tea smoothies from starbucks. despite this being a half-way competent shot to begin with i just couldn't leave it alone. i sent it through Auto-DAP about ten times, picked my two favorites, and blended them in GIMP with the "real" digital bird photo underneath.


the bird itself was long gone.

These birds were all just floating around down at the lake.
