All My Spots and Stripes

All My Spots and Stripes (Common Loon), Wisconsin
In the Northwoods, loons are the sound of summer.

Swamp Wren

Swamp Wren, Volo Bog, Illinois
This little wren was singing his heart out while gathering nesting material in Volo Bog.

Steller's Jay

Steller’s Jay, Montana
All of the shades of blue with the contrast of black and white make this one of my favorite birds.

Laughing Gull

Laughing Gull, Oak Island, North Carolina
The size of the things that birds swallow never ceases to amaze.

Indigo Bunting

Indigo Bunting, Illinois
The striking Indigo Bunting is a rare treat during migration.

Puffin Runway

Puffin Runway, Cook Inlet, Alaska
I was on a small boat, rocking in the waves, trying to steady myself and pan as puffins and auklets flew all around.  To say it was a challenge is an understatement. It was so much fun!

Jasper Pulaski Sandhill Cranes

Sandhill Cranes, Jasper Pulaski State Park, Indiana
Sandhill cranes stopover by the thousands on their southward migration here every year.  The sounds are just as awe-inspiring as the sights.  These birds have really made a comeback.

Pelican Glide

Pelican Glide, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Drafting alongside my boat, never flapping a wing and skimming just over the surface of the water, that’s the pelican glide.
