Of course, you can click on any photo to see the details!
The purple stain around his mouth is from mulberries. It was obvious, as his roosting tree I found him in after his morning session was next to a mulberry tree.
Thanks Bob! I REALLY enjoyed my time with you!
Video to come...

A doe changing it's winter coat from shabby to chick!
A milkweed flowerball full of creatures!
Blue Grosbeak. Extremely rare! A lifer!
A Northern Mockingbird. Extremely elusive around these parts, so snapping a picture was a thrill!

They went at it for a few rounds.
Both taking turns attacking.
Mom waited in the wings, as the battle continued...
...until the victor held up his prize!

I got lucky discovering this family teaching the young one to fly. It's skills were quite poor, so the parents took turns coaching the baby to fly in various directions for food. The fence was no help. They pretty much gave in and flew to him after each session.
While taking a break from work outside this morning at about 6:30 a.m., I see a nighthawk in pursuit of his prize. This chase lasted for a good hour, until they both disappeared onto a rooftop where they could have more privacy.
