One of my best shots. At least for yesterday..  ;)
I managed to annoy a Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) by not moving out of its way and insisting to stick around and photograph him/her.

Great shot of a red squirrel,

Nice to see some shots of squirrels where they are not being torn apart by some bird.

It was a bad month for squirrels on CR in March  ;D
So whats with the ear tufts? Ours have them too now. Mating plumage?
Cheers Brian

I call this bub "Fat Boy".
Hopefully he will not explode ;)
Hmmm, so what would be the correct shutter timing required to capture that?
Questions, questions, questions.......

Yellow Rumped Warbler~
Fabulous shots Ken, all of them.
Where were they taken? There's certainly a great diversity there, must be a lot of food available.

A few more from a recent trip.

Is that a giant tadpole the GBH has? It doesn't look like a fish...
Its really hard to tell, maybe a crab or crawfish? Maybe a closeup at full resolution would tell?

Blue Tit, Bearded Tit, ZZ-Tit or just a very orthodox one?

It just looks like its molting. Every bird has two primary molts a year...one for breeding plumage, and one for winter plumage. When they are in the middle of a molt, or just about to molt, they can look a bit raddy and their colors/patterns aren't quite standard. This looks like a Blue Tit to me. Definitely not a Bearded.
Ooops, it was meant as a joke, due to the mouthfull of dog hair that it has in its beak........ :-\

When we brush our dog, in the springtime the hairs go into the feeder shown so birds can take them as nesting material.

Cheers Brian

Great Tit.
Man! You are SO COOL!

And we have another bird whisperer!
Hey thanks for the kind words, and thanks to the others that commented too.
You're very kind.

Here's a Greenfich squabble.
