If last weeks post was sparse,this week is plentiful.
The first 8 pictures are Jake's work,and the last 5 are done by Ruth.
This is a Ring-necked Duck,although the 'ring' is not visible. Here is a male Ruffed Grouse caught in the act of drumming.
This is a very old photo,taken with slide film and scanned to the computer.This pair of Redhead Ducks are also taken with slide film and scanned.
The Red-breasted Nuthatch is a year round visitor at our feeders.
as he is always on the move. Jake caught this one in that second of inactivity.
At this time of year the marshes are filled with these birds.
As seen here the red throat feathers only light up when the light hits it just right.
These birds are persistent singers,from the highest branches of the trees.
These birds are colorful and have beautiful rich voices.

This guy is almost clownish,with his bright colors.
If you ever have a chance to watch their courtship display
you will certainly enjoy it.
The vigorous head bobbing is most amusing.
