Bird Of Prey

Coppers Hawk

1/27/17

Among the bird world’s most skillful fliers, Cooper’s Hawks are common woodland hawks that tear through cluttered tree canopies in high speed pursuit of other birds. You’re most likely to see one prowling above a forest edge or field using just a few stiff wingbeats followed by a glide. With their smaller lookalike, the Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper’s Hawks make for famously tricky identifications. Both species are sometimes unwanted guests at bird feeders, looking for an easy meal (but not one of sunflower seeds).

Woodpeckers

Downy Woodpecker

The active little Downy Woodpecker is a familiar sight at backyard feeders and in parks and woodlots, where it joins flocks of chickadees and nuthatches, barely outsizing them. An often acrobatic forager, this black-and-white woodpecker is at home on tiny branches or balancing on slender plant galls, sycamore seed balls, and suet feeders. Downies and their larger lookalike, the Hairy Woodpecker, are one of the first identification challenges that beginning bird watchers master.

Red Bellied Woodpecker

Red Bellied Woodpecker

Red-bellied Woodpeckers are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers common in forests of the East. Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just resist the temptation to call them Red-headed Woodpeckers, a somewhat rarer species that’s mostly black on the back with big white wing patches. Learn the Red-bellied’s rolling call and you’ll notice these birds everywhere.

RAPTORS

This is probably the most common hawk in North America. If you’ve got sharp eyes you’ll see several individuals on almost any long car ride, anywhere. Red-tailed Hawks soar above open fields, slowly turning circles on their broad, rounded wings. Other times you’ll see them atop telephone poles, eyes fixed on the ground to catch the movements of a vole or a rabbit, or simply waiting out cold weather before climbing a thermal updraft into the sky.

Bald Eagle

The Bald Eagle has been the national emblem of the United States since 1782 and a spiritual symbol for native people for far longer than that. These regal birds aren’t really bald, but their white-feathered heads gleam in contrast to their chocolate-brown body and wings. Look for them soaring in solitude, chasing other birds for their food, or gathering by the hundreds in winter. Once endangered by hunting and pesticides, Bald Eagles have flourished under protection.

WATER Birds

Common Tern

A graceful, black-and-white waterbird, the Common Tern is the most widespread tern in North America. It can be seen plunging from the air into water to catch small fish along rivers, lakes, and oceans.

 

 

Mother Nature, and, The great outdoors have many wonderful sites ,smells, sounds, textures, colours, movement it is very spiritual, and allow your senses to FEEL the Love. Stopping to smell the roses (Taking your time) and actually knowing what is happening around your Hike, or walk in the Park will sensitise,or,  help any person enjoy life just that much More, A whole bunch.

Turn your cell phone OFF. It is better to See the forest for the Trees, not the other way around If you feel you need to be “in touch” with friends, They can wait, and if you want Instant gratification–The Great Outdoors will give you that, and more. Whereas–a Cell phone can be used if it is for an Emergency.

Sometimes (mostly) I prefer to be on a Hike by myself–that way there are no interruptions, and animals are not as skittish, also the chance to get that once in a lifetime Image while alone is a Higher percentage.

Great Horned Owl

Mother Great Horned Owl

The mother, very visible, gives me Hope, and some shots to take.Presently she sits on eggs, within two Months from NOW–The owlets will be BRANCHING, Strengthening there wings.

They will be left all alone in the Nest, while Mom and Dad owl will not feed them till they fly over to them in fur trees. I pray this year, The Hoards of people, will understand that Nature, is best left out of the hands of Humans, Last year this was not the case.
