  1. Christopher from Picus Blog is on a marvelous trip to Trinidad & Tobago so we’ve added his entry: a female Elegant Trogon!!

  2. I had a fabulous time at the St. George Winter Bird Festival last weekend; got some great water fowl pictures like these wood ducks. More to come!

  3. A pair of American Kestrels from the Katy Prairie area, just west of Houston, Texas. No great composition here, but nice examples of the differences in coloration and markings between the male and female of the species. Enjoy!

  4. Hey Matt, since you don’t have a place to comment, I just wanted to say what a super capture you have of the Red-tailed Hawk portrait. Is that bird in flight? The image is so sharp and I love the bokeh.

  5. Hi Larry – Thanks for the kind words! The photo was taken when the bird was in the classic T pose, just prior to taking flight. 500mm equivalent (300mm + 1.7 TC) and the bird was fairly close which helped with the bokeh.

  6. Our local urban Bald Eagle chicks peeked over the rim of the nest yesterday, but my camera wasn’t ready. I am terrible with flight shots, but one of the adults accommodated with a flyby.
