Catching Itself After Falling

A fledging snowy egret catches itself after a fall.
This fledgling snowy egret was trying to fly from branch to branch when I saw it fall. It successfully grabbed long stringy branches that hang down from the eucalyptus tree where they nest. It slowly made its way up to higher branches. I photographed this bird at the W. 9th St. rookery in Santa Rosa, CA.

An Osprey Brings Half a Fish

An osprey flys into a nest
About 15 minutes later the original bird flew off with the fish. Its partner did not seem to want it. I photographed these birds at Lake Sonoma in Sonoma County, California.

Turning Away

Anna's Hummingbird flying away
This Anna’s hummingbird had been at a feeder when it turned and began flying off. Their speed can be as high as 61 mph or 27 meters per second.

Leaving the Nest

This red-shouldered hawk is leaving the nest. If you look closely you can see a fuzzy head of an eyas above the edge of the nest. I took this picture at Spring Lake Regional Park, Santa Rosa, CA.

Ford Tri-Motor

City of Port Clinton Ford Tri-Motor aircraft
The “City of Port Clinton” 5-AT-B Ford Tri-Motor airplane is based at Liberty Aviation Museum in Portage Township, Ohio. In 1925, Henry Ford, of the Ford Co., bought the Stout Metal Airplane Co., with the hopes of creating America’s first mass-produced airliners. The three-engined planes were all metal, and like Ford cars and tractors, they were well-designed, relatively inexpensive and reliable for the era.
