This colorful Roseate Spoonbill was great at finding sticks for nest building, but terrible at trying to figure out how to build the nest ! He desperately needing someone to show him how it's done, and it sure wasn't me.

It's that time of year. I hope the white squirrel I've been following has babies this year!

My favorite bird pair is back in town. Here the female Osprey is seen bringing water plants to line up the nest. I hope it is the same pair who occupied the same nest last year only to lose their both babies before they could fledge. Hope this year they will have better luck. I'll follow-up regularly to see their progress. Keswick, Ontario

I went back to check on the nesting sign of the eaglets but saw tip of a white head so knew one or more parents were there. As I took photos of the head tip, the adult started to in right place at right time, wind blowing the leaves aside so I could get some good shots, a thrill.

I'll have to go back when the young are starting to fledge...maybe I'll get lucky again.

...interesting observation; the neighbors are so accustomed to them they don't pay any attention.


Enjoy the weekend, flickr friends....thanks for your visit...Pat...xo...

Stopped alongside the Causeway overlooking the Upper Mobile Bay on my way home. The Osprey nest was active with the male bringing sticks and the female placing them where she wanted them. This is the female and she was busy at work.

This Say's Phoebe has a nest in the eves of our desert shack. This morning, wearing the color black, I hid in the shade and took shots of the Phoebes bringing food to the nest.

Good Monday Morning folks, and hope a great Holiday weekend was had by all and a safe one as well.

I thought I would post this to show that there really was a nest to protect and how the behavior of the Juvy depicted the behavior of the adult, and also was in a defensive pose even at that age. Thanks to all for visiting and have a wonderful day.

The rookery at High Island, Texas is teeming with egrets, spoonbills and a few other species during the spring breeding season.

Jet Nest", the nest of aircraft: This is a big steel egg from which the wing tip (or beak) of a jet plane, the same way that a baby bird out of the egg breaking its shell. This work by Magnús Tómasson is symbolically placed on a Icelandic rock mound that takes the place of the nest in the middle of a pond, where it is reflected in good weather. When this photo was taken, on the down at the end of February, the pond was freezed.

I think she looks like she is sleeping in a little nest here. I can't tell you all how much I love my new 17-55mm 2.8 lens. I could never have captured this shot with my 50mm or 85mm.

Got out to Gator-land Orlando today, had great time. Lots of herons and egrets nesting and some hatched. There are a lot of try-colored herons hatched up to one month old chicks. Cattle egrets started nesting!

California Towhee (Melozone crissalis) eggs, in a nest in our front garden, less than four feet off the ground. I snuck this photo when mama bird flew off to find a snack, so I didn't disturb her.

Bestill52 week 18: organic. Found this nest which had been blown out of a tree after the birds had left it. Fascinating to see all the materials used in the construction - even a piece of string along with fleece.
