Pretty sure he’s re-enacting the T. Rex roar scene from “Jurassic Park.”
I do believe mom and dad coordinated the goslings so they could get a few moments of peace and quiet.
The violet-greens like to collect nest materials, I think, off the pathway around the wetlands. They also like to wait until just before I walk up before they fly away. It’s like a game.
These house finches have been a consistent delight this spring. I love bird watching wherever I go, but sometimes the home birds are the best medicine.
Just because there’s two minutes left in #WorldOtterDay , and because I like wildlife, and otters should probably not be as likable as they are, but they tend to capture attention like few other mustelids.
There’s no middle ground with air conditioning in hotel rooms. It’s either 75 degrees in the room and the thing blows hot air, or you’re putting on more layers to insulate yourself from the arctic blast.
Tried to go birding after work today, but it’s 96-degrees in Medford, and the birds are quiet. I guess I’m people watching for the rest of the evening.
Now if the damn thing would just start sweeping by itself. That would be really impressive. #broomchallenge
People really piss me off sometimes. This is a wetland, a refuge for wildlife in an industrial area. If you can’t control your dog, even when on a leash, don’t bring it to a wildlife area. Not to mention the kid laughing uncontrollably while the dog chomps the poor snake.
I get to work with a lot of turtles in my line of work. They’re good conservation-education partners. But meeting this old turtle on a rural road in Indiana a few years back still bounces around my memory chambers from time to time. #WorldTurtleDay
I skipped lunch to go birding today and then saw this crow cruising out with a mouthful and immediately regretted it.
If this ain’t the prettiest pair of purple martins around, then it’s because I just don’t see them often enough. That’s a dapper dude and a lovely lady.
