  • Great Blue Heron Fishing in Winter

    A solitary Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) fishing in a salt marsh in winter. Initially I didn't see it standing in the tall grass. As I was heading out of the marsh, the Great Blue started croaking letting me know it was there. I went back and got a few shots.

  • The Slide

    Tiny Sanderling lost its footing and slid down the rock although it does look like the Sanderlings are taking turns sliding down the rock.

  • The Jump

    A seagull that was sitting higher up on the rock jumps over a seagull into the water below much to the dismay of the lower seagull.

  • Two Mute Swans In Flight (Wings Down)

    I was standing on top of a tall sand dune overlooking a nature preserve. I saw these two Mute Swans (Cygnus olor) off in the distance heading straight for me and the open ocean. Nothing like being in the right place at the right time.

  • Osprey and Chick 2018

    All four Osprey nests I watch now have three chicks each. In this photo, one of the chicks sits next to the mother Osprey. The other two chicks are down inside the nest. This is the first year I've seen this Osprey platform occupied. There are now two Osprey nests at this location.
