Seeing it is the end of the month,it is time to share another post.
I have picked a few of my favourite pictures.
All of these pictures were taken on March 17,2012.
This little Red-breasted Nuthatch visited the feeder at my house.
I always enjoy seeing these guys.They allow one to get fairly close.
I have them at my feeders all year,and I love that.
From my house we head to the Pembina Valley. I hope you are not getting tired of seeing pictures from that area.I love being at the Hawk Watch and of course pictures follow naturally.
A pair of eastern Bluebirds were checking out a nest box just across the road from where we were sitting. Here the male is checking to see if all is well.
At one point during the day we were treated to a bit of a tussle between an immature Bald eagle and a Common Raven.
I think the Raven had underestimated the size of its opponent.
I am not quite sure what is happening here,but they seem very close together.
It was shortly after this picture was taken that the Raven veered off and left the Eagle to carry on.Wise choice,in my opinion.
I think this may well be my best ever shot of a Bald Eagle.
The light was just perfect and the bird was fairly low.
This was one of those moments where all eyes were on this one bird and many exclamations of joy were heard.
I am thrilled to have gotten this picture. The warm late afternoon light makes those wings glow.
Thought for today:
No bird soars too high,if he soars with his own wings.
