Taken at St Vrain State Park in northern Colorado, two Bald Eagles were keeping watch as the sun rose last weekend.
“Do you hear what I hear?” Remember that He is the reason for the season! I wish you all a very, Merry Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year. God Bless!
Even eagles have to itch! Well, either that or this guy was giving me a bit of a “middle finger salute” – you decide which. 😉
his handsome mule deer buck appears to be having a good laugh – perhaps at the expense of the photographer? 😉 Taken November 28, 2014 at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
I’m not normally one to take pictures of water fowl but Wood Ducks are just pretty darned cool. This handsome guy was hanging out in a Denver area pond back in October. The coloring is just brilliant on these birds.
A very brave – or very dumb – squirrel in northern Colorado this past Saturday. 😉 This male bald eagle seemed quite amazed that a squirrel would dare to come quite close to it. Surprisingly enough, the eagle did nothing and simply watched the rodent as it walked around the tree.

A female Bald Eagle appears to be giving her mate quite an earful yesterday in Longmont, Colorado.
My mission today was to find bald eagles and I was rewarded heavily. Four were seen at St Vrain State Park although the lighting was less than optimal and limited opportunities. Going into Longmont I then found a picture perfect pair. They initially were on two separate trees but the female soon came and joined its mate.

This Burrowing Owl and its clan were a hoot (pun intended) to watch this past summer. They have since left Colorado for southern latitudes where the weather is warmer during the winter. These little owls have a symbiotic relationship with prairie dogs, sharing their colonies with both sounding the alert when predators approach.
