Re: Brazil 2017 Birds

Max, below is a link that shows some Google images of the Black-necked Stilts in MT. Thought this approach would be much faster than trying to go through all my bird images that I've taken over the years. The birds look very similar. What do ya think? Do you think that they're related? Just read tha...

Re: Brazil 2017 Birds

Max, your images are stunning! The Pied Lapwing looks almost identical to the Black-necked Stilts that occasionally pass through MT. I've only seen them twice...once along the Stillwater River near Nye and once at Swan Lake Flat in the Park. Sightings have been on the decline in MT in recent years a...

Question for Canon 5D3 & 7D users

I also have several older Pearstone LP-E6 batteries that I can use with either camera and a Pearstone AC/DC battery charger that I've used for several years to charge the Pearstone batteries in my vehicle/trailer. Since I'd Iike to replace the Pearstone batteries becau...

Re: How about a BEAR FRIDAY again?

Sorry I was late posting my bear shots. Guess I was having too much time (and fun) on my walk down memory lane. ;)

Re: How about a BEAR FRIDAY again?

Let's take a walk down memory lane. Here are a few shots of my most favorite Yellowstone bears. The "ORIGINAL" Rosie.

Re: Post your favorite Duck photo, from anywhere....

I've always been intrigued by the male ruddy ducks. When a male is in courting mode, it gets all gussied up and then puts on quite a display for the ladies, hoping to impress one or more female by its unbelievable dexterity as it arches and extends its neck backwards, right over its back....just lik...

Re: It's Tuesday...post your badgers!

Usually I'll see badgers in the Park from early June to mid-July. After a mother has newborns, she often moves them to new a den, almost on a daily basis, to protect them. The thing that I find so interesting is that the youngsters take part in the digging of the new den holes. I've got a number of ...

Re: BC Birds

Max, I just saw a northern harrier fly over our house this morning. Kind of unusual to see them this early. Went for a walk along the river yesterday and saw lots of geese, ducks, a couple of bald eagles, a golden eagle and a mated sandhill crane couple that comes back every year to nest So it looks...

Re: Mid June/Early July Park Trip in the Works

Sounds good, Rik. Hopefully, the local weather and road conditions will cooperate so I can make the trip.
