birds (90)

Male Ruby-Throated Hummingbird

Got caught in office kitchen yesterday. No one was around and it must have died from lack of food. They have to eat often due to such high metabolism and they go into a hibernation phase at night, but this guy apparently couldn’t get food or get to his hibernation perch.

Egret in Garden Pond

The two large fish-eating/wading birds in our area are egrets and great blue herons. Both are super wary and spooky, especially the herons. They will fly to the top of the tower, about 30′ above the ground, and check out the pond before descending. They are after the little fish in our pond. When this happens, I sneak into the house and shoot photos through the window that looks out on the pond.

Look at those black legs.
