A few recent shots from around home. If you have bird shots, please share 'em.

Mr Tricolor enjoys his breakfast.

Common gallinule or marsh hen

Our national bird. Love these amazing raptors

Coots in the sunrise. Lake Jackson is just a block east of us. I have to look at this each morning as I leave home for work.

Nice thread. I miss Swampsniper. Well, he probably understands by now how a bird feels to fly!

God bless you, Swampsniper!

BTW, what do you use to host images? (if you don’t mind sharing) I was using Dropbox, but they are no good anymore...I am casting about for another way to do it.

Thanks for the pings! Great shots! I've never seen a tricolored heron so that was real nice.

My walk today in the East Mojave was nice though. The black-throated sparrows have returned en masse. The whole desert was alive with their "two-notes-and-a-trill" morning song!

Perfect words. Birds belong to the air, the wind, the spirit... Swampsniper is with friends. :)

Beautiful photos, Is7. Thanks much!

Photobucket.com is one of the more popular image hosting websites here. I think they and tinypic are associated.

Not in your league as a photographer, and I never have a camera when I see our local eagles (two nesting pairs that I see regularly!). So here's a stolen pic that will appeal one way or another:


Yes, that's a pair of boobies.
