This White-breasted Nuthatch showed up while we were trying to photograph an Ovenbird last month in Ohio. It’s difficult to stay focused on the task at hand when a bird like this pops in right in front of you and gives such a nice pose.

This Red Breasted Merganser was so cooperative yesterday though as is often the case atmospheric conditions made getting sharp photos difficult when shooting at eye level, I had to raise the camera about 2 feet off the ground before I could get anything. Luckily for me I found a rock that I could lay the camera on and it also doubled as a blind.

The Bay-breasted Warbler, a neotropical migrant, inhabits boreal coniferous forests in a broad band across central and eastern Canada. This one was seen at Red Rocks Road in the south-western corner of NF where they are also known to breed


Not the greatest of images, but this male posed for only 3 or 4 seconds before he vanished into the woods across the river.

This has been a great spring it had a slow cold start after a rough winter but I have had the opportunity to get better views of some birds I had only brief glimpses of in the past.

I have always had a thing about woodpeckers/sapsuckers and the opportunity to see a Red-breasted Sapsucker on a feeder tree and raising babies was a great experience.

(Lonchura castaneothorax) Another bird from Tahiti but is also found in Australia. The chestnut-breasted mannikin, also known as the chestnut-breasted munia or bully bird, is a small brown-backed munia with a black face and greyish crown and nape. It has a broad ferruginous breast bar above a white belly.

The lilac-breasted roller (Coracias caudatus) is an African member of the roller family of birds. It is widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa and the southern Arabian Peninsula, preferring open woodland and savanna; it is largely absent from treeless places. - Wikipedia

Photographed here in Madikwe National Park, South Africa.

It was awesome getting such good looks at this cooperative individual!

These little birds are usually seen up-side down on the trunk or side of a large tree.

Rose-breasted Grosbeak pays a visit to our yard

A very agitated Red-breasted Nuthatch was scolding everyone within hearing range. I am not sure what was bothering him but it was pretty birdy in that area and maybe some bird got some tasty treat he thought should be his.

Very active young Red-breasted Sapsucker scurrying up a tree.

This Red Breasted Merganser surfaced with this fish, but he ended up giving it up to a Herring Gull!

Beautiful Lilac Breasted Roller we spotted when driving around Kruger National Park. I love these little birds.

I will not be posting on Flickr for the next couple of weeks. I want to thank all my Flicker friends for your visits, support and kind comments. Always very much appreciated. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and take care!

Spot-breasted Lapwing - Vanellus melanocephalus - Пестрогрудый чибис


Bale Mountains National Park, Oromia Region, Ethiopia, 01/11/2015

Mr Red Breast poses as he surveys his territory in Sherwood Forest.

"The Yellow-breasted Chat offers a cascade of song in the spring, when males deliver streams of whistles, cackles, chuckles, and gurgles with the fluidity of improvisational jazz. It’s seldom seen or heard during the rest of the year, when both males and females skulk silently in the shadows of dense thickets, gleaning insects and berries for food. The largest of our warblers, the chat is a widespread breeder in shrubby habitats across North America, venturing to Central America for the winter."

The Scaly-breasted Munia, Lonchura punctulata also known as Nutmeg Mannikin or Spice Finch is a small passerine bird. This estrildid finch is a resident breeding bird in tropical southern Asia from India and Sri Lanka east to Indonesia and the Philippines. The Scaly breasted Munia has been introduced in Puerto Rico and Hispaniola (Bond, James, Birds of the West Indies), where they are already widespread in lowland agricultural areas and are called pechijabao (A. Dod). Flocks of fifteen or more have been observed visiting bird feeders in Orange County, California, USA. It has also been introduced to Australia where it has a common to uncommon distribution along the east coast, from north of Townsville to south of Sydney (Field Guide to the Birds of Australia, Simpson,K and N.Day, 7th Edition, 2004).The Scaly-breasted Munia is a small gregarious bird which feeds mainly on seeds. It frequents open woodland and cultivation. The nest is a large domed grass structure in a tree or under the eaves of a house into which 4–10 white eggs are laid.

This male Red-breasted Sapsucker is worth a close-up. They are such a striking looking bird.





Lilac-breasted roller

Coracias caudata


Lilac-breasted Roller - Coracias caudata, 32-36 cm, a resident of the drier parts of SA, especially acacia veld. Rollers are colourful, predominantly blue & purple in colour. They are conspicuous, stocky, perching birds with elaborate & noisy aerial display flights, from which their name is derived. There are only 12 species worldwide, 8 from Africa. 5 types are found in SA, 3 off being summer visitors. They are noisy, like in having a harsh voice. Being insectivorous, they also eat lizards, small mice and anything nice they may catch. They are perch hunters, sitting on a high branch, watching for pray. Once they spy the prey, they fly down to the ground where they catch it and then return to the same perch. Because they are so intent on catching and securing the meal, they are sometimes killed by passing cars. The one thing I learned lately is that a little bit of cloud cover really can bring out the colours in certain birds’ feathers, much better than in direct sunlight. As far as colour is concerned, the feathers look different in different lighting conditions. Rollers are easier to photograph than starlings colour-wise, but not as easy to approach.

White-breasted Nuthatch at Hazleton, PA. Same bird on same branch in same pose as posted yesterday but at a different angle. First shot I was standing and shot at eye level. This shot was done kneeling down looking up at it.

This weeks miracle! We finally had a break in the weather, and had a partial day where the temperatures were in the double digits and the sun was out. We dropped everything to go out for a walk around Resthaven Island, BC.


Even though it was close to noon, the birds were active and happy. A bonded pair of Canadian Geese were relaxing on a grassy knoll by the cliff to my right. An Anna's Hummingbird was displaying just beside them, a little more in front of me. Getting most of my attention directly in front of me was a pair of Northern Flickers whom I witnessed mating (didn't get a shot as by that time, they were on a less than ideal branch hiding behind more branches.) Then, while I'm standing there in awe of it all, and wondering where to direct my attention next, this Red-breasted Nuthatch whizzes by my left leg to do a fast and very active search for insects in the tree directly in front of me.... I was standing on the limit of my len's minimal focus distance of ten feet.


The whole experience was a total boon to my psyche after an exceptionally long and cold winter. To think that only three days previous it was 1 degree and sleeting...

White-breasted Nuthatch @ Cascade, Idaho

Today I went out to catch some of our common year round residents to move my Canada 150 project forward. I posted this Red-breasted Nuthatch. Black-capped Chickadee, and White-breasted Nuthatch.


Added to my Canada 150 Album.

A different look at a White-breasted Nuthatch


A Red-Breasted Nuthatch perched on a sunny frosted branch on a cold winter afternoon.

Adult female.

A large diving duck with a long thin bill, the Red-breasted Merganser prefers salt water more than the other two species of merganser.

Maroochydore, Qld. Australia.

The common name aptly describes this bird, which has yellow breast feathers broadly edged with green that look like scales. The Scaly-breasted lorikeet is 235 mm long, which includes 100 mm tail. Sexes are similar in adult plumage, being generally green. The crown and sides of head are emerald-green slightly tinged with blue, while the feathers of the back of the neck and throat and breast are yellow, broadly edged with green, giving scaly appearance.

This lorikeet is common in most timbered areas of Eastern Australia from Bamaga (the Tip) Qld, south to Illawarra district NSW; also on some offshore islands.
