Maine! Titmouse attitudes

Tufted Titmouse: York County, Maine, USA, April 2024 — The Tufted Titmouse is at our feeders every day, all year long. There is a pair nesting somewhere close by. They are particularly perky birds, with their little crest, and show a lot of attitude. Always fun to watch, and if I sit still enough they will come quite close. OM System OM-1Mkii with M.

Florida! Early Spoonie

Roseate Spoonbill: Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Titusville, Florida, USA, January 2024 — It was still early light by the time I left the pool behind the entry sign at Blackpoint drive, and there were still a lot of Spoonbills and Egrets feeding in the pools by the road. This handsome male, just coming into breeding plumage, was strutting his stuff. OM System OM-1 with M. Zuiko 100-400IS zoom at 372mm equivalent.
