    Striped (a.k.a Brown) Basilisk

    Thanks. I couldn't catch it running. But it was nice enough to pose with the light falling on its eye.

    Striped (a.k.a Brown) Basilisk

    Or possibly the Common Basilisk, I'm having some trouble trying to find enough info to figure out the difference. No matter the species, they are known for running on their hind legs when startled and can even briefly run across the surface of water.

    The elusive Northern Jacana returns

    Thanks! It was a combo shot..hand-held and hands-free. The camera was hand-held, shooting out the window, as I was rolling past the birds in my car.

    The Great Egret

    I'm always up for a challenge but this will be a tough one. So far, the only place I've seen it is outside the gate to our complex. Which means I have to be lucky enough for it to be located so I can shoot through the gate. Or, like today, open the gate and tip it off. I approached while...

    The Great Egret

    I've herd of them but I don't think I've even seen one let alone photograph one. It just started showing up and I hope to get lots more shots.

    The elusive Northern Jacana returns

    They are very cool and yours is an interesting question. So what is the difference between "bird" and "fowl"? The real payoff will come when I finally get a good shot of them flying. One day....

    Adolescent Brown Jay

    These are big birds, almost as big as a crow. There have been lots of family groups around with lots of adolescent birds trying to get their parents to keep feeding them. All those yellow bits on the beak and legs will turn dark as the bird matures.

    Jurassic acorn?

    Nope. Not all coconuts make it to maturity before they fall.

    Nice action shot.

    Feasting parrots

    That is the case with many "exotic" pets. People get enamored with the idea of the animal and give little though to proper care. Years ago I wanted to get a true chameleon with the rocket-launcher tongue and independent eyes. I think that are just so cool and fascinating. So I did some...

    Big Ben gets a guava

    Its a good thing they are vegetarians. Otherwise they would be scary! Apparently Big Ben is starting to feel a little entitled and has been known to scratch at the sliding glass doors! After that,neighbor Carl threatened to stop feeding them (a few come over). Carl gave in pretty much the...

    Flower thief BUSTED

    I like how he's got that caught-in-the-act look. "Ahhhh...I'm trimming the shrub"

    Big Ben gets a guava

    So the neighbor was feeding Big Ben by hand but I got there too late for that shot.
