I've had to find some shots I took a couple of weeks ago to start the new thread with. If anyone wants to revisit the previous thread, here's the link http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1249428/#top

To start, a female Pink and Grey Galah saying hello to you all. Next a couple of Little Corellas in our big eucalyptus, then another of the Pink and Grey, followed by a Nankeen Kestrel and finally a Great Egret.

On the last thread-Nanny, cute little sparrow.

Burn, you have a great variety of birds there. I love that wp.

Adel, such pretty goldfinches. Mine love their daily bath in the tabletop fountain. I'll have to catch a photo.

Linth, great pictures of your birds. So clear and sharp at 700mm!

My pair of nuttall's woodpeckers continue to come on the deck and here's some more of my tree swallows.

Great start to the new thread, Margaret. Beautiful birds.

Duc, I agree with Pelle. The Nuthall's Woodpeckers are a favorite of mine, also.

I have been visiting a few Bald Eagle nests (from a distance) at Blackwater NWR. On my last trip, I took these photos at 850mm. I seldom use my 1.7x teleconverter but thought I would try it out. I've never been real pleased with the results. It's okay for identification purposes but that's it, as far as I'm concerned. I think I'll stick with the 1.4x, at 700mm. Anyway, by my next trip to Blackwater, the eaglets should be big enough to see above the nest cup. The variety of other birds at Blackwater has been rather mediocre.

I think I can truthfully say that the red-bellied woodpeckers have found the suet on the tree!!!! My hubby says that there was a Chickadee on there yesterday too. I was going to stop feeding them with the upside down feeder to get them to try the other but I did not have to do that, they found it on their own. I would like to see a Northern Flicker on it, that would really make my day. But I love all my birds, maybe not the sparrows that much:)!

Linth, your eagle shots are wonderful. It looks like those eagles picked a pine tree with hardly any shelter from the wind.

Teddy, you've worked hard to attract the birds. I'm glad the woodpeckers are showing up.

The orioles are really showing off for me at the feeders. The first two photos are Hooded Orioles the last three are of a beautiful Bullock's Oriole.

The Starlings have discovered the suet on the tree, I have been scaring them off by opening the door and banging on a pie pan, is there anything I can put over the suet cage that the woodpeckers can still get to the suet but the starlings can't?

Great pics Gary!!

Sorry Teddy there is nothing you can do. Starlings have long beaks and can get to anything woodpeckers use. This is just one of those bad things that goes along with feeding the birds.

I have a lot of European Starlings and Common Grackles here that love to gobble suet up.

Teddy, starlings have to eat too.

This crow has been busy building a nest, just one brown-headed cowbird here so far, a pair of house finches and a couple of the purple finches.

Duc, so many gorgeous shots. Just LOVE the orioles!
Linth, stunning eagle shots -- beautiful!
Love all the woodpecker shots everybody!
Gary, NICE! Way better than I did at High Island.

These pics are from High Island. I was able to compare my observations at High Island this year vs. last year. I went on almost the exact same date, but birds vary by weather. It was really slow this year --half the warblers, only Orchard Orioles no Baltimores and I only saw Indigo Buntings no Painted Buntings. What surprised me is how much I've grown as a birder. Last year, I was so exited coming home from High Island and I recorded 35 species. This year, I thought it was slow and I recorded 65 species! I'm able to find and ID more species, but I'm much more jaded!

Spoonbills, Tennessee Warbler and a Black-bellied Plover.

Lily_love, please send me one of your Red-headed Woodpeckers. Despite being in Maryland, I have never seen one.

Gary, looks like you hit the jackpot ! Nice photos.

duc, you have your own aviary. Always a nice selection of birds with excellent photos.

My first image is a Black-necked Stilt. They are a very striking shorebird, i.e. black and white, with pink legs. Second is a Greater Yellowlegs. Third and fourth photos are my first eaglet photos of 2012, shot at 700mm.

Going to take down the suet feeder on the tree, it is not attracting anything but starlings, the other birds ate off it too, but it did not attract anything different than the upside down one did. If I left it up there and just put plain or flavored suet in there the squirrels would start again, and we just got rid of them. I will keep it in case I get another idea, but for now, I will take it down when it gets empty. It was just a experiment anyway.

Iris, thanks for taking the time to share those red, white and blue feathered friends with one another. Adel the Emu with babies is something we don't get to see everyday. I love to spot turkeys in the wild, nice find. Duc, your Western Kingbird is alot more colorful than our Eastern ones. Hello Burn, Mrs Ed and Rose, Margaret and Pelle. Please keep those pix coming. I'll post to share any news from down South and long with Elphy and others.

ducbucln, Thanks! The white bird is a hawk, When I first seen him 5 years ago, I didn't think he would survive to long being that he's white, I thought he would stick out like a sore thumb and be easy prey or have a hard time getting prey, but, He has done just fine, Actually, Its a "she", I watched her carrying nesting material a couple weeks ago. ~ She's really getting mobbed a lot , Especially right now with all the nesting birds out there.

http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/f/birdid/all/

The first 2 photos are of a newly arrived oriole. It sure had a hard time trying to figure out how to balance on the feeder perch (it did finally make it), then there's an adult Hooded Oriole and another oriole sharing with a hummingbird. Last one is a Bewick's Wren.

adelbertcat, I tried to get a shot of a chipping sparrow the other day, But, Missed out, At least I get to see a pic of yours.

ducbucln, Love those oriols, I try to attract them, But, Don't usually have much luck. ...I miss the tree swallows! Great pics, Love #2 and #4!

Well, I have a couple pictures of the Mockingbird babies, Unfortunately, I don't think they made it :( .. My Rose bushes got so weighted down with rose blooms that it made the branches hang down exposing the nests, They are pretty much exposed open, Especially the mockingbird nest and the sun was scorching hot the other day, The poor little things were panting, So I took a big beach unbrella and placed it by the root of the rose bush so that the babies would get some shade, Seemed to work well, Everything was fine again, But then, Yesterday we had heavy rains and strong winds, I had the unbrella set up so that it would protect the babies from the rain too, But, The strong winds and heavy weight of the rose soaked branches split open the bush even more and the poor little babies and mother were no where to be found today, I'm still hoping that they made it to some safe spot, But, They really weren't at the age to leave the nest yet, It really sadens me that this happened. The Thrush is still at her nest in the other rose bush, I have the unbrella covering her now from rain and sun, She seems to be doing good, She has five eggs , None have hatched yet, I'm hoping they all pull through seeing the situation, I'm going to have to keep a close eye on them! I'll be posting pics a little later.

Lily-love and ducbucln, Thankyou for the comment on the babies.

Great photos all, Duc, Love # 3 and #4 and just love those oriols, Wish I had some here! Are there any migration charts for them here??
Glad you asked about the carrote because I was curious too!!

Ok, Finally got a few minutes to post some photos!!

First photo ..The two Rose Bushes where they built there nests
#2 ... Trying to cover the mockingbird babies from the sun, Then rain
#3 ...Trying to protect the thrasher nest from sun and rain ( As you can see the rose bushes got really messed up)
I have not seen the Thrasher mom around.. She was always on her nest, So I'm a bit worried now)

Catbirds are loving the Florida Privet berries. Mockingbird with a juicy bug. Little Blue Heron in not so graceful flight. Crow was being chased by two other Crows for the twig it was carrying.
