A pair of Red Bellied Woodpeckers inspect a new Flycatcher Nest Box. Its now late July and 7 baby Red Bellied Woodpeckers have hatched and fledged in two broods so far this summer so I’m not sure what these two are up to – it could be they just can’t resist checking out any potential nest site and give their opinion. Mother woodpecker in particular seems to spend a long time checking from every angle. Some nights the woodpeckers roost in the various nest boxes even though it’s not breeding season.

Wild turkey and elk in the USA

A Wild Turkey can run really fast and probably get away a lot faster than taking a short flight. Not sure what this turkey was running from, but you can see a turkey in full run – rather impressive. On the same day a young elk was also in a hurry.

This was an elk according to the North American definition; not the Eurasian definition.

Video for Cats to Watch – Raccoon at night in extreme close-up for cats, dogs and people that don’t go out in the backyard at night or have not experienced a wild mountain Raccoon. This is a great opportunity to introduce them to the most common wild mammal larger than cats and small dogs they are likely to encounter – and with bigger fangs and claws as well. This hungry fellow ruined my photo shoot plans for filming wild southern flying squirrels so I don’t want to waste his brilliant performance…….enjoy!

Northern Flicker Woodpeckers Feeding Babies

15 July 2016

The Northern Flicker nestlings are growing fast – one has left the nest box and two remain. Like the Red Bellied Woodpeckers, the Flicker kids are really big babies – spending almost a month in the nest box – and feeding them is not for the faint of heart!

A trio of White Ibises take an unlikely break from foraging for bugs in the ground on top of the security light. They are unusual and attractive birds and fairly common around parts of Florida, but they look a little uneasy on their unlikely perch.

U.S. police continue to be acquitted even with video evidence. Yet those who film the killings are being harassed and some sent to jail.

Over 80 protesters were arrested at two different anti-police violence protests in Baltimore, Maryland, and Portland, Maine: here.

Chipping sparrow feeds fledglings in the USA

Mother Chipping Sparrow is busy feeding seeds to two cute newly fledged babies. Chipping Sparrows are rather attractive sparrows in my opinion with their cute red cap and strong eye liner and generally pleasant outgoing nature around the yard. I find the best way to feed birds and enjoy their behavior is to simply throw the seed on the ground during the morning – just enough to last through one day.
