Osprey with a fish in the backyard.




Osprey on my neighbor's dock with a fish.


A blue heron lands on the same dock as the osprey.


Then I notice the blue heron is on the top of the boat lift with the osprey. The osprey doesn't seem to mind. He keeps eating his fish.


Eventually the osprey gives the blue heron his evil eye look and the blue heron flies off.


Right before dark, I see a great blue heron on my dock. Looking at something interesting. Maybe a fish?





Scenes from my bedroom window.

  2. We are the intruders. The wild life was here ages before we were and they know how to survive.

  7. So, how many people invite themselves to come over to look out your bedroom window? Thousands will, if the word of your bird-viewing gets out, Dina. What wonderful shots of the osprey, the fish and the heron.

  19. What a pair of birds! Never in my wildest dreams would I expect to see these birds tolerating each other at close quarters especially with feeding going on. These pictures are truly remarkable.
    Hey love the new header too. Kind of gives me the feeling that humanity and the animal kingdom can coexist!
    Happy New Year to you and best wishes for many great opportunities like these!

  24. I really like your birds shots.
    I had a heron visit my backyard once- which is pretty amazing when you live close to the city. I later discovered two of them in a local park -by the water.
