Eastern Phobe

I photographed this Eastern Phoebe in Mead Garden, Winter Park, Florida, on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. I thought these birds had started their migration North. I had not seen or heard an Eastern Phoebe in over a week, until today. Thankfully I was able to photograph this bird in the Wetlands this morning. How could they leave without one, last, look?  They will be flying North soon. I look forward to their return in the Fall.

I photographed this Red-shouldered Hawk enjoying a meal in Mead Garden, Winter Park, Florida, on Thursday, February 15, 2018. I was walking along a well-traveled path in Mead Garden and noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. I looked up and this Hawk was eating a fresh catch. I backed up a tad and the bird didn’t seen to notice me so I quietly started taking a few photos (never with a flash). I left and the bird was still on the same limb 10 minutes later.

I photographed this Male Pileated Woodpecker in Mead Garden, Winter Park, Florida, on Sunday, February 11, 2018. The main ID difference between Male and Female is a red stripe on their Malar (Cheek).

Blending “into” the environment means a lot to me. Observing, listening, even a birds faintest sound adds so much to my experience. Looking at what they see and how the bird reacts. I love when a bird is comfortable enough with me to land close by. I am privileged to be in their environment. Quietly observing.
