Great composition and exposure, Darwin! One of my faves, too.

Love the wren shot, Bob! It was so amazing to see one of them in Patagonia.

BN, well, what can one say? Money?

I think the one on the left did not have the proper discipline or focus, so probably a Taoist ;-)

Whoooo hoooo!

I got my first ever Orange County Golden Eagle today!!

I went to scout Flores Peak before doing it with my boy Jake. He had said he wanted to climb it.

It's a short but proud/historic peak near Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary and where the bandito Juan Flores and one other outlaw narrowly escaped from a posse of some 60 men by riding his horse "off a cliff." The rest of his gang were captured.
He was captured later after 11 days on the run by a posse of 120 and hung after this escape. This was in 1857.

The eagle flew around the corner just below me and I barely got the camera out and him in the frame before he vanished.

I wish I got a better shot.

Today's bird from the Kenai beach. I was there with all the 4th, 5th and 6th grade students that have passing grades for a beach party. I was able to take a walk on the back side of the dunes and this guy was singing his heart out.

"Wisdom, at least 63, has had 7 chicks in 7 years By Matt Cantor,

Wisdom the Laysan albatross is "at least" 63 years old, experts say, making her the oldest known wild bird on the planet. And, amazingly, she's still hatching chicks. Last week, a worker at the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge—Wisdom's home in the north Pacific—saw the mother caring for a new chick, according to a press release. And it's a feat she's managed for each of the past seven years, LiveScience notes. For comparison, most Laysan albatrosses live between 12 and 40 years, per the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Wisdom first came to the attention of researchers while incubating an egg ... in 1956. She was tagged then, and has likely raised no fewer than 30 chicks in her lifetime."
