@SharW75 , I had the most fun going through your album. Stunning pictures. Was just about to suggest we share a similar selection of avian life, when I saw your location! What is your favorite spot to go birding?
I envy your Brown Creeper...my pictures of these guys stink.
@jnicholes , I'm simply drooling! Fantastic work. Northern Flickers are my favorite woodpecker, and it appears you have the Red-shafted! How I'd love to see one. It would be a nice change of pace after nothing but Yellow-shafted.
Wonderful close-ups of the raptors.....truly makes one feel like they're right there.
@Alexandra33 , THANK YOU! Many of the pictures I've taken were just around my farm, but there are two places I love to go. One is the docks in Conneaut Harbor on Lake Erie. There is a huge population of eagles there, and I can't believe how many amazing pictures I've taken there. The other place is Pymatuning State Park, which is about 15 miles south of us. There are some great trails and I always see a bunch of interesting birds.
We have a bald eagle family consisting of a parent and two juveniles that lives near us. I've been watching them for the past several years. This morning, they were in the field next to ours, probably feeding on a dead deer that got hit the other day. Even though eagles are fairly common around here now, I never get tired of seeing and watching them!
