Love those ospreys, CTJohn!  How close was the nest and situated where?

Jack
It's a spot at the lower end of the Everglades, near the Flamingo visitor center.  There's a nest near the boat landing where you can get about 20 feet away.  The ospreys seem to be oblivious to visitors.

Had a Harrier pair nest a few miles from me this year. Got a few picts. The Males seem to be the most difficult target, very shy.

1. Harrier female hunting in fields.
2. Harrier juvenile
3. Harrier male with his kill ( a red winged blackbird nestling )

Awesome images everyone!


Untitled by alabang, on Flickr

The Oriental Skylark (Alauda gulgula), also known as the Oriental Lark or Small Skylark, is a species of skylark found in the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Like other skylarks, it is found in open grassland - often near waterbodies - where it feeds on seeds and insects.

These skylarks frequently rocket up into the sky, fluttering and singing before descending down to earth. Male Oriental Skylarks may also hover in the air and sing, in order to attract a mate.

Oriental Skylarks are about 16 cm long. They have streaked, yellow-brown upper plumage, with white outer tail feathers and a short crest. Both sexes are similar.

Technically not the best of shots (and I’d wish I had my current setup when I shot this picture) but still one of my favorite personal bird pictures.

Just received my "ship when available" brand new Stephenson, Tom "The Warbler Guide, 2013".

I am not in any way connected to this book so this is a totally disinterested comment:

THIS BOOK EXCEEDS MY WILDEST DREAMS AND IS A VERY WORTHY PURCHASE!!  I'm in awe.

If anyone wishes some specific feedback feel free to ask.
