baby Great Horned Owl.... spring time is great

Yes it is. Especially before the trees fully leave and hide things.

Great - there is one baby in the nest I am watching.  The parents of the babies in your pic will be busier trying to keep all 3 fed and happy !

I like the second Great Horned Owl shot. It almost seems as if the tree is full of owl ears  ;D The pheasant in the field is great composition.

Thanks for the compliments HankMD

Grizzly or not ?

This is a black bear.  One way to help id is to look at the ears -  black bears have proportionately taller and more pointed ears than a griz.  Also the head structure is different and grizzly bears have a more prominent hump.  Hope this helps.

The Horned and Slavonian Grebe are the same bird (Podiceps auritus) just to help a little more  ;)
I think the American continent call it the Horned whereas the European's call it a Slavonian, hope this helps you with your bird ID studies.

Thanks.  I'm reading about the Grebe right now.



I love these context shots. The pheasant in particularly has great visual power.

Thank you much for the compliment.

As others have said, it's a horned grebe. It isn't a duck at all.

Thanks - guess that is why I didn't find it.  I am trying to learn more about birds all the time and enjoy bird photography.  Here are a few others from this spring, including an  Great Horned Owl, American Kestrel, and a pheasant.

Can someone help me ID this diving duck?  I can't seem to find it in Sibley's or online.  Thanks.

Perched Golden Eagle in the National Elk Refuge near Jackson


Here is another shot telling.  The feet tell me that he is most likely a Golden Eagle.  What do you think?  Golden or Juvenile Bald Eagle?


I believe this is a juvenile bald eagle.  The beak/ bill is larger and more characteristic of a bald eagle, the feathering does not go all the way down the leg as shown in the second pic, and the wing markings also look like a young bald eagle.  Either way they are neat pics- I like the second one where it likes like he is relaxed and stretching.

Specs and early reviews of the new Fuji X-T1 look very promising.  I got a chance to play with this camera at a local store.  The camera is well built with weather sealing and the EVF is nice.  It is small, but not too small.  Attach the 18-55 fuji kit lens, which is great by all reviews, and you would have a great walk around set up.

Red Rock Canyon City Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

I love this shot.  The contrast of the orange rock and frost on the trees is beautiful.
