Thanks Carl for the Sandhill Cranes picture! So beautiful!
Can't wait to see more!
I'm going to the Whooping Crane festival in the spring!
I'm looking to buy a new birding scope - I've been looking online.
Hopefully I can get some good pictures.

Cornell Lab - Winter Bird Feeding

Can anyone recommend their favorite sunflower seed feeder? What shape do you prefer? How do you clean them?

Thanks, Steph.  But like I said, I take pix of birds.  Don't necessarily know a lot about them.  Here are two Sandhill Cranes taking a break, which you don't often see them do at the same time.  Just like when they eat, one usually keeps watch.  The one with his eye open is watching me trying to get close.  I titled it, "Insomnia."  Sandhills are protected here in FL, and they walk around like they own the place. More later!  Karl

Hello Karl thanks so much for joining. Those are wonderful pictures.

You will enjoy it here.

Comment by Karl Ford on November 16, 2012 at 9:57am

Thanks, Melinda.  I have a lot more, but I won't bombard you with them all at once.  Karl

I was hoping I could just add this to the other pic of the osprey, but I guess not, but I'm getting the hang of this.  This is an osprey that caught a fish and ate half of it.  I think he's taking the rest back to the nest...What a guy!

Comment by Karl Ford on November 16, 2012 at 8:22am

This is an Osprey.  They hunt for fish by hovering over the water and then diving into it.  It's fantastic to watch.

Hello, I'm a professional photographer that just happens to take a lot of pix of birds, especially since I moved to Florida.  The variety here is amazing, and I've gotten some great shots.  Steph S. invited me some time ago if I wanted to post some, so...

Hey Tony!

I'll answer your question with a discussion on the difference.

It would take the whole board up here.

I love the new bird photos you posted.

How pretty.

Comment by Tony Carroll on November 15, 2012 at 1:35pm

Steph, is a Sanderling also a Sandpiper? Still, a strikingly stunning bird.

Australian Passerine. Wonderful black/yellow colors.

Gouldian Finch, also from Australia.
