Hodge-Podge

Just a few reserves to post:

The Great-crested Flycatcher is often heard before seen. It's such a beautifully marked bird. It is the only eastern flycatcher that nests in cavities, and often uses snakeskin in the nest lining.





Northern Flickers drill holes for nests. It looks as if it changed its mind on the placement of the hole and finished the one he is in. He peeked out for just a second.





The Red-headed Woodpecker is such a starkly bright colored bird. It's one of my favorites! They also drill holes, and this pair had babies they were feeding.






I found this wren to be quite funny looking. Here he looks as if he has a handlebar mustache. Quite handsome don't you think?






This junior Bullfrog was just hanging out above water when I saw him. I'm used to seeing them quite a bit larger than this, so I took the opportunity, although my vantage point was not optimal at all.

Beautiful Redheaded Woodpeckers! We hardly ever see them around Louisville. Frogs always have a superior look on their faces.

What a joy this post is! You really have some fine captures here! A norther flicker in the hole - and the RHWP's at their nest site (I'd die to see that)The great-crested flycatcher is a really neat bird - my sister had a pair nest in her yard in a box - they were just amazing! Great post, Hannibal!

Your pair of red-heads is wonderful but my favorite is the little flicka poking out of the tree.

We have some red headed wood peckers all year long in the back yard but I have never been able to catch them with my camera. Your pictures are so clear and close - I don’t know how you do it.

Great variety :-) Those Red-heads...wow

Eve said...

I love them all! I got my first Red-headed Woodpecker this morning! I'll see if the pictures are good enough to post.

I just love that flicker shot! I have never seen one in their "home" setting before. I also like the red heads...sure wish the one I saw here would have stayed.
