Radiating Light

Another Spring flower from my neighborhood.

Fading but Still Beautiful

Spring flowers from my garden. Experimenting with my new iPhone 14 Pro Max’s Portrait mode. It’s really great except in this mode it does now shoot in raw.

Tulip Blossom

This tulip plant is growing in my yard. Their blossoms are beautiful but last too short a period of time.

Feeding Time

Song Sparrow feeding a fledgling.
The song sparrow parent is feeding a fledgling while the other seems to patiently wait. This family has been landing in my window feeder. One of the fledglings appears to be learning how to eat on its own. Maybe the parent will finally have some peace, and quiet.

Unruly Child, Stop Arguing With Your Sister and Get Off My Back

This song sparrow family landed outside my kitchen window. The two fledgling siblings seem to be arguing about who gets fed by their parent. The difficulty is that one fledgling is standing on the parent’s back. Santa Rosa, CA

Intensely Watching

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.

Running out of Room

red shouldered baby hawk spreading its wings.
This red-shouldered hawk eyat is spreading its wings. It is still too young to fly. An adult’s wingspan is 40″/101 cm. The nest size is 16″ to 24″/40 cm to 60 cm across. I took this photo in Spring Lake Regional Park, Santa Rosa, California.

Red-Shouldered Hawk and Eyas

Red-shouldered hawk and two babies.
The adult is the same one that I showed close up yesterday. I did not see the adult bring any food. Spring Lake Regional Park, Santa Rose, CA.

REd-Shouldered Hawk

This is one of the two nesting adults sitting on a branch about 30 ft / 9m away. I was in Spring Lake Regional Park, Santa Rosa, California.

A Steller Jay and a Meal

Steller Jay with an insect.
I did not realize that we had these beautiful steller jays in Sonoma County. I took this photo at the Spring Lake Regional Park, Santa Rosa, CA.

Three Siblings

These three black crown herons chicks seem to be checking out the rest of the birds at the W. 9th St. rookery in Santa Rosa California.
