It’s been a little while since I’ve gotten over to the Ridgefield NWR to shoot but I made it over today, June 21, 2016.  The first thing one notices driving into the refuge this time of year is all the new blackbird and songbird activity, with lots of fledgling birds ... Continue Reading

Berry Pickin’ Birdie

One of the last images I took at the Ridgefield NWR today, Sep. 3, 2015, near marker #11, where there is a small, leafy, berry-filled tree/bush.  I had stopped there in the midst of tracking a raptor I had seen earlier and noticed a commotion in this berry bush.  There must hav ...

July 7, 2014 – East side of Mt. Hood, OR � ...

Several factors made me decide to try something different for today’s (July 7, 2014) photo shoot.  One, Ridgefield NWR is relatively quiet this time of year and the grass is very high, making shots that I could easily take in winter, very difficult now.  Two, I am in need ... Continue Reading

Here’s a group of shots from back on May 31, 2013.  I was getting a greater variety of birds back in the Spring compared to summertime.  The Pileated Woodpecker–my previously crowned Nemesis Bird–is no longer that. Finally, after almost 7 years of shooting I c ... Continue Reading

Well, it’s been almost 2 months since my last blog post describing my shooting day!  After an update to WordPress back in May, I was unable to upload images to my website.  I contacted both my host and WordPress –neither had the answer.  I even looked into getting ... Continue Reading
