Some Nor Cal Raptors

Hi All, Bill invited me to joint the forum, so thought I would introduce msyelf with a few raptor shots. I currently live in the SF Bay Area, but got started in photography way back when I lived in Tacoma and Puyallup. I currently shoot wildlife primarily with a Sony A9/A7R4, combo, but sometimes sneak in a shot using my Fuji X-T3.

My first time out in ages. I was getting cabin fever and asked my wife drive Daren and me down to the marsh on Valentine's Day (2-14-2020).

The herons paid no particular attention to me.

Wesley, on the other hand, wondered where I had been.

We're Hungry!

Now mom stays away from the nest except for feeding time as to not attract any predators. They grow quickly so won't be around but a few weeks before they will learn to fly and eventually leave. For now I have something fun to watch while I...

Swift action from FAA, US Navy follows Detroit Blue Angels drone incident

  • 560

Earlier this week, the Blue Angels flew over Detroit, Michigan, to honor frontline workers. There wasn't a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in place but the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) always issues a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) whenever a major event involving manned aircraft is planned. One remote pilot decided to fly his drone dangerously close to the fleet and is now in trouble with the FAA, U.S. Navy, and local authorities.

The drone community was outraged, as well. One individual who felt their wrath, for simply re-posting footage that wasn't his, is Vic Moss of Moss Photography. 'My take is that those people who are so vitriolic to me did so out of passion for the industry. While I most certainly did not appreciate it, and its caused no end up exasperation to me, it was all done out of passion for the industry,' Moss tells DPReview of the thousands of threats and...

Got this little fellow at McNary Wildlife Refuge over near the tri-cities yesterday... First time I'd had an opportunity to see and photograph one, so I was pretty excited! We had just arrived, and hadn't even had time to park when we saw it... stopped in the middle of the road and snapped some pics. I shot these from the passenger seat, through the driver's side window... LOL!

I was encouraged by Bill to post some more pictures from Nebraska, since it's 2 years from this post. Here some of our local birds and some on their way somewhere else. Cormorants at Memphis (NE) State Recreation Area. Eagles in flooded area along interstate 29 in Iowa. Turkey Vultures just across the wide Missouri River in Iowa.

Great Bear Rainforest 2019

I finally got images from my last tour of the year online. In this case, it was my September Great Bear Rainforest tour. For those not familiar with the Great Bear, it's a region of coastal British Columbia that is most famous as the primary home of the spirit bear. But there are black bears, grizzlies and loads of other wildlife... combined with some spectacular scenery.

For this tour we live on a boat for a week-and-a-half and cruise around the islands and inlets looking for wildlife. It's a very fun trip.

See the full gallery of 100 new photos from this trip here. A short preview is below.

I am always glad to see a native Douglas's squirrel in our back yard. Two of them were (quite appropriately) in two of our backyard Douglas's firs Thursday (9-14-18).

Squirrel #1.

Squirrel #2

My and my neighbors backyard fences form a squirrel freeway to Pine Ridge Park, home to many of these small squirrels, which are native to the aera. The larger, more common squirrels are eastern grays, which are an introduced/invasive species.

San Juan Island Foxes

I led a short tour for a client last week up in the San Juans. We found plenty of wildlife, including the multicolored red foxes up there. They're such beauties, with orange, black and silver coats (they even come in brown, but we didn't see any of those).

I've uploaded a new photo gallery featuring the fox encounters to my website. Here's a short preview:
