This is the last of the old pictures, at least for now.Lots of pictures in this post, but all of the same subject.I chose birds for this post. All photos were taken by Jake,well before the digital era.The slides have been scanned into the computers are now easy to use.
A sleek and well dressed duck, the Scaup is beautiful in it's own way.I think this is a Lesser Scaup.If I'm wrong please correct me in the comments.
Canada Goose,possibly sitting on eggs.
What big eyes you have! An Owlet,likely Great Horned,but I could be wrong.
A House Wren bringing food to the young in the house.These birds seem to have endless energy.
A pretty Common Redpoll.This is a winter visitor in my area.
The well known and well loved American Robin. A bird with one of the most recognized songs.
Male American Goldfinch,lovely to look at and equally lovely to listen to.
Male Eastern Bluebird,a bird with beautiful plumage and a lovely song.
The male Ruddy Duck is a unique looking bird.That blue bill is hard to miss.
The Tree Swallow competes with the Bluebirds for nest boxes.I enjoy watching them.
The male Pileated Woodpecker is unmistakable.This crow sized bird is becoming more common.
This picture was likely the first shot Jake ever had of this impressive bird.
