Wood Thrush

For me the Wood Thrush is a bird I may often hear but seldom seem. Hanging out in those forests deep with green and hidden out of sight they have such a wonderful song. After listening to his song for several minutes this Wood Thrush flew out and landed on a post in a clearing for a minute or two before retuning back into the woods. Love the pudgy belly on this one.

The Avocet and the tern: a short story.

Imagine you are an American Avocet enjoying a quiet morning in the pond. A bit of feeding and then a little relaxation then a bit of feeding.

Then without warning a Forester’s Tern makes a sudden and unannounced and dramatic visit to your patch of the pond.

Looks like he got what he was after. Just a brief interruption of an otherwise peaceful morning.
