"When Being Yeller Ain't A Bad Thing"-- these #EveningGrosbeaks have been in a steep decline in the northeastern USA in recent years, but not so much where I found this feller in #jacksonhole #wyoming #outwest. #grosbeak #yearroundresident #yeller #yellow #animal_sultans #Excellent_Nature #Photomafia #passione_fotografica #everything_animals #wow_natura

"When Life Serves Up Lemons"-- This #GreatHornedOwl has turned life's lemons into lemonade. With its longstanding eye injury it appears that instead of nocturnal, this owl is now diurnal. Someone has photographed this owl with the same injury about 5 years ago 15 miles from here. #owl #only_raptors #jacksonhole #bluespruce #diurnal #whenlifegivesyoulemons #beanovercomer

"Fuzzy-topped Fledglings"-- this white fuzz is a give-away that these twin #greenherons have recently taken their first flights out of their nest. #heron #greenheron #fledgling #greenies #twins

"The Essence Of Sartorial Splendor"-- don't look for these #bullocksorioles in the eastern USA; they are gracing the west. Attracted by the sweet nectar, he is here on a on a chain that is holding a hummingbird feeder out of view below. #Orioles #jacksonhole #hummingbirdfeeder #orangeblackwhite #sartorialsplendor #sassybirds #birding_lounge #nature_of_our_world #Photomafia #Excellent_Nature #animal_sultans #ww_nature_knowledge #passione_fotografica #everything_animals #wow_natura #feather_perfection #birds_illife #na_natures_art

"Guppylicious"-- its the ol' #GreatEgret mid-bill, small fry, sushi juggle. #lunch #juggler #egret #swallow #sushi #gulp #guppy #smallfry #bigbird

"The SkyBlue Bluebird"-- the #lazulibunting has a unique blue color. It breeds in the western USA during the summer months. #bluebird #bluebirdofhappiness #jacksonhole #aspen #skyblue

"Bald Eagle Versus Osprey"-- #baldeagles not only keep their #eagleeyes on fish, they keep their eyes on those who catch fish. #osprey #fishermen #battle #dukeitout #raptor #merrittislandnationalwildliferefuge #titusville #only_raptors

"About Four Months Old"-- here is to hoping that this young #baldeagle makes it to adulthood. Only 10% of these young ones make it to their fifth year. The dark brown color and solid black bill are give-a-ways that this is a first year Baldy. #cohoes #raptor #bluesky #agingabaldeagle #happyhatchday

"She Is Twenty-Years-Old"--the female of this pair was hatched in 1997. Can you tell which one is bigger? #baldeagle #baldeagles #matedpair

"Rapid Elevation"-- A Peregrine Falcon is known for its speed in its descent (called a "stoop"), but if it has to go high very fast, it can do that too; that looks like it hit a brick wall and went straight up, leaving you wondering, "how in the world did that happen?" #staightup #elevate #fastestanimalonearth #peregrinefalcon #emmathefalcon #falcon

"A Tough Find"-- it took me 38 years of #birding to finally see this #goldenwingedwarbler . It was nice to catch this guy singing in the Adirondack Park. Thanks to #ebird I knew the exact location of this bird, who saw it, when it was seen, and what other birds were seen near it. There is no better tool on planet earth than ebird for locating a specific species in a specific location. #warbler #adirondacks #washingtoncounty #bluesky #singing #cornellschoolofornithology
