  • Where to start with this photo? Bohemian Waxwings are such wild subjects, there is no taming them. During this session with them I got 12 photos. My camera shoots at 8 frames per second, so that’s less than 2 seconds before they flew off and didn’t return to this tree. There was no adjusting settings or composing the shot, there was just holding down the shutter and 🙏. Even trying to edit this photo, these birds couldn’t be tamed - bodies going everywhere, no level of cropping or un-cropping could yield a ‘perfect’ composition. So here they are, a brief moment of waxwing bliss.

  • The master of their tranquil domain, the solitary heron sits. On a muddy mound made from the wisdom of yesterday’s catch, they dwell. Iconiclasts; the stuff of fish nightmares. Y’kno, SCARY 😱 One definitely wanted to murder me through some thickass glass at a desert museum once. Great Blue Herons do. not. fuck. around.

  • Not only is this pine grosbeak one of my favorite birds, it is also an exclusive photo that Tony (@wild_lives_matter) hasn't yet posted to his page.

The pine grosbeak (Pinicola enucleator) pines for seeds. Almost its entire diet consists of plant matter and seeds...hence its powerful beak! These are among the largest of North America's finches, and can also be found in Asia and Europe. Just before the new year, this handsome chap was photographed in Canada, where the majority live out their lives.

Tony took this photo in Algonquin, many hours north of Buffalo. Just as we travel for birds, we gladly travel for our clients!
