Other Than the Star


So while the Falcated Duck was stealing the show, I managed a few other images from that trip to Colusa. There were plenty os Snow Geese, Greater White-fronted Geese, American and Eurasian Wigeon, Green-winged Teal, Northern Shovelers, Coots, Harriers, Egrets, etc… but for some reason I spent more time watching than clicking. Here is a Cinnamon Teal Hideout.


A young Red-tailed Hawk explored areas near the water’s edge.


I like the lovely extension, wings to feet, head to tail.


Leafless trees make for easier bird watching… but they can watch you just as easliy.


Falcated Duck or not, the Northern Pintail is a sharp dresser.


Here is an extra view that I can’t stand to leave out of this post.


Tomorrow we’ll get back to Tanzania.

    These are gorgeous Walter. Glad I didn’t go running out to Colusa (from Mill Valley) since I don’t know when it was you photographed that Falcated duck. But there’s always a surprise. Last time we went was for the cranes.

    I’ve helped PRBO a bit with Bolinas surveys, and your photos continue to be razor sharp and gorgeous – almost better than seeing the birds first hand!
