This gorgeous Red Tailed Hawk posed beautifully for the camera in Guelph Ontario Canada and the colorful fall foliage was the perfect background. The Red Tails are very large raptors and usually sit near fields with their eyes focused on the ground looking for moles and more.

Close up of Red Tailed Hawk with colorful red and green background

Took a little road trip into the desert last week. I love parts of the desert and would live there if it wasn't so hot. I love the Sanora Desert with it's Saguaro Cactus and they were blooming. The bird is a Thresher. Well done Arizona!

Face of a blue jay.

I don't know what cause the aberration just below the beak. Even so, I'm not dissatisfied with this photograph of a blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata).

This is a closeup photograph of the head and neck of a blue jay.  The background is forest green.  The blue jay's forehead is white for glaring light, but it fades to sky blue feathers that flow down the back of the head and neck.  I find the yellow eyes interesting; it seems like it is angled forward a bit mor that most birds but not quite as forward set as a hawk.  Its beak in this photo is pale, the end of the upper mandible hooks over the lower mandible. The neck feathers below the beak are white, they are separated from the blue feathers on its back by a patch of black feathers.

Exorcist tune 🎶🎵

This red-bellied woodpecker has his head turned almost 180 degrees. I know that most birds can do this, but I want to have fun with it.

"The Red-bellied Woodpecker belongs to the boldly marked Melanerpes genus, a group of woodpeckers found only in the New World that includes Acorn and Lewis's Woodpeckers. The genus name derives from the Greek words for "black" and "creeper."" -

In this photo a male, red-bellied woodpecker is perched on the side of a tree.  The tree fills the right half of the picture, blue sky and branches fill the left. The woodpecker turned his head to its left almost 180 degrees.  Its head is capped by short red feathers, its eyes are black, its face is tan with reddish tints here and there.  From this angle, its black beak looks almost flat and curved slightly downward to a point - it has the appearance of the pointed end of a long sunflower seed.  The feathers on his back, wings, and tail are horizontal black and white stripes and it has its wings folded like a man holding his hands behind his back.  One bark colored leg and claw is visible with four talons gripping the side of the tree.

I blend.

This rose-breasted grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus) certainly stands out. Is that a red "S" on his chest?

"Bursting with black, white, and rose-red, male Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are like an exclamation mark at your bird feeder or in your binoculars. Females and immatures are streaked brown and white with a bold face pattern and enormous bill. Look for these birds in forest edges and woodlands. Listen, too, for their distinctive voices. They sound like American Robins, but listen for an extra sweetness, as if the bird had operatic training; they also make a sharp chink like the squeak of a sneaker." -

This grosbeak, perched on a diagonal branch, fills the center of the frame.  There is out of focus green forest in the background.

The grosbeak's head, throat, and eyes are completely black.  He is facing the camera and his head is slightly turned to the left.  His large conical beak is light beige or tan.  His front side is completely white except for a bright red mark on his chest. His back and wings are black with white markings but only the very edges of the left wing and tail are visible.  Gray talons hang on to the branch.

"Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are stocky, medium-sized songbirds with very large triangular bills. They are broad-chested, with a short neck and a medium-length, squared tail. Adult males are black-and-white birds with a brilliant red chevron extending from the black throat down the middle of the breast." -

Great weather yesterday so I took the day off and we headed out for a morning hike.
Nice list of #birds "lifers" but some first of the season.

Indigo Buntings were out in force and in full throat.

I haven't seen a tufted titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor) in a while, this bird was around this morning. This is a great photo if my subject is the leaves on the right. The titmouse ... well ... it'll do because these birds bounce around like a high-speed pong ball. Tufted titmouse fans enjoy any image they can find.

"The oldest known wild Tufted Titmouse was at least 13 years, 3 months old. It was banded in Virginia in 1962 and found in the same state in 1974." -

#photo #photography #photographer #photographylovers #birds #birdsofmastodon #birdwatching #TuftedTitmouse

This titmouse is perched on a diagonal branch with its back and right side facing the camera. Out of focus green forest is in the background.

The bird's gray and white head is facing right.  It has a short gray crest stick backward atop its head, its eye is black, and its small black beak looks a bit like a pencil lead.  The front of its face is black but its cheeks are white.  Its gray wings are folded on its back and its gray folded tail sticks straight back.  Its underside is white but there is peach color under is wings.  Gray feet hang on to the branch.

"Tufted Titmice look large among the small birds that come to feeders, an impression that comes from their large head and eye, thick neck, and full bodies. The pointed crest and stout bill help identify titmice even in silhouette. Soft silvery gray above and white below, with a rusty or peach-colored wash down the flanks. A black patch just above the bill makes the bird look snub-nosed." -
