The Tororoi Rufo or Grallaria Rufula (Rufous Antpitta) was my first sighting at Hacienda el Bosque, near Manizales at 3000 masl or so. Known as Juli, she arrived at a set time, at a point of observation to eat some worms and a few minutes later she left. It is widespread and locally common in the soil or near it, in its natural habitat of humid tropical or subtropical mountain forests between 2200 and 3300 meters above sea level. .

I must admit, my Mum and I were a little disappointed to see this Pileated Woodpecker yesterday. Before you judge, hear our reasons 😊 We were visiting a location known for American Three-toed and Black-backed Woodpeckers. Last time I visited this spot the 3 toed were abundant.  As you’re walking down the trail, the sound of your own breathing, jacket rustling and boots hitting the snow muffles any sounds. So, every few steps, we would stop and listen. On many occasions what we thought was a Woodpecker tapping was just the trees creaking in the wind. Needless to say, it was a slow and tedious walk. Finally, just before returning to the parking lot we heard some distant tapping. After trekking off the trail, peering at trees and listening we finally saw this male Pileated Woodpecker. Sorry guy, you weren’t who we wanted... but we appreciated you anyway ❤️

For the second Valentine’s Day in a row I found myself chasing owls in Alberta. Meet my Vowlentine - a gorgeous Short-eared Owl at sunset ❤️😉 Big thanks to @kenandersonphotography for not only filling #ethicalowlphoto with stunning owl photographs (seriously, check out his account!), but also for being my virtual guide yesterday.

It's not often I capture a bird on a really clear and well positioned perch. So here's a sweet picture of a Blue Tit.

American Dipper making all my polar vortex dreams come true. Most of the water has frozen around here so I didn’t think I’d be seeing any Dippers for awhile. I went to one of my regular spots and lo and behold, it still had open water. After standing around awhile in the cold, this one came out from behind some frozen reeds. It almost seemed ‘happy’ to see another creature out there in the cold. It sang out and flew right towards me, landing only a few feet away. Incredible moment 😍

Lightroom wasn't allowing me to share this yesterday so here it is this evening. Taken the last time I went out, I laid on frosty and slightly muddy grass, and had perfect sunlight. A male Mallard.

I was thrilled this week to be rewarded for going out in the cold temps with a Townsend’s Solitaire eating berries! I find this species tough to photograph and I’ve never seen one on berries before. It took a lot of patience standing there in the freezing waiting for the bird to be comfortable enough to resume eating while I was there. Of course it wouldn’t come out onto the berries in the open, just the ones deep in a world of branches. I did my best to find a window through them...

Brown Creepers make me happy. They’re such understated and overlooked birds. I remember the first time I saw one I had no idea what it was as I’d completely missed it in my field guide. Just a little brown camouflaged bird climbing up a tree ❤️

The polar vortex has caught up to us here in BC, with wind chills below -30 C🥶 As cold as I am, I think about all the creatures out there living outside in this. 🤞for Great Blue - photographed last week when it was +3. 💙

After looking at so many Aussie birds in my archives, it’s nice to remind myself that North American birds can be bright and colourful too! I’m hoping to see some Evening Grosbeaks this winter, but so far no dice. I’m sure they’ll arrive at my feeder any day now... 🙏

Juvenile Crimson Rosella photographed in Australia, 2017. I’m a sucker for high key images like this. I imagine a modern house with large white walls crying out for this type of photograph. Maybe one day I’ll own this type of property 🤔 A girl can dream! #humpdaydreaming

A pop of colour from Australia to brighten up a longggg January here in Canada. This is an Eastern Yellow Robin taken on my first trip to Australia, nearly 3 years ago. So many gems in the archives that I never posted. Back then I only wanted frame-filling photos, being as close to the bird as possible. It’s neat to look back on old photos with a new more experienced perspective. 💛

Had a little break from the unforgiving world of instagram. Most, if not all, of my recent photos have not been sharp enough and I currently have no idea why. I'm trying my best not to blame my Sigma 150-600 C 😂
. 
Went out this morning and saw a Bullfinch, female Pheasants, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, a Green Woodpecker, Common Kingfishers and the odd Grebe. I captured a grand total of ZERO good images (from 200 or so).
.
If I ever work out why I'm not getting sharp photos, I'll start posting more regularly again. Until then, enjoy this beautiful Goldfinch 👍

I’ve shared my photos and stories of the whirlwind of Bohemian Waxwings eating berries on my street. In another part of town, the Waxwings are exhibiting totally different behaviour. They are hanging out on snow and ice shelfs along the banks of the river hawking insects. Some of them are riding on ice flows heading down river which is really cool to see! I slid down a steep bank to get more on eye level with them and I got this photo of one with a totally white background. A bit different to the frenzy of colour I posted earlier in the week.

Female Northern Pintail setting off rare alerts in my area. She’s hanging out with a big group of Mallards so difficult to separate from the group for a photo. With some patience I got her solo. It was just before dusk so I was shooting at 1/125, but thankfully a couple shots were sharp!

An oldie but goodie. Short-eared Owl photographed at dusk in Vancouver a couple of years ago. I have a brutal cold this week, so am stuck indoors and taking some time to organize my growing archives of photographs. I used to organize by date, but now moving to organizing by location (total game changer!). I’m also using a bit of a Marie Kondo method - do these 400 photos of the same subject spark joy? If not, then delete and just keep 2-3 of the best 😀

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 9 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.

Really awesome experience yesterday getting great views of a Rough-legged Hawk - a visitor from the arctic! I’ve never seen one perching and cooperative like this, it was a real treat. Despite the temptation to get closer and closer, our group stayed far enough away that the hawk was still happily perching on the post when we left. 🤙

I can’t decide which I like better, the bird or the bark. Not often the tree steals the show, but this time it just might have. ~ Hairy Woodpecker photographed in my front yard on the weekend.

I couldn't work out who this was from my last visit to Regents Park, but today he was there again and without trying too hard, I discovered he's a Common Eider.

I'm really enjoying photography again and that's all I really want. I love wildlife and I love the challenge this hobby presents.

Probably my favourite of the 4 or 5 shots I took of Mandarin Ducks last weekend. Wherever you see these ducks, they are always incredibly beautiful.

If there ever was any doubt about the size of the Northern Pygmy-Owl I think this photo puts that to rest! On Jan 1, 2019 I had a surprise encounter with this teeny owl right in town - likely looking for snacks at all the bird feeders. A small, but vicious predator, this bird never ceases to amaze. #ethicalowlphoto

Just a little bird in a big snowy world ❄️ American Dipper photographed this week on a snowy perch. I thought the location was going to be a bust, but just before driving away I noticed this little’un on a fantastic perch. You never know what you might see if you look hard enough!

Harlequin Duck, the best looking duck? This is from my trip to Vancouver last winter. Every winter I like to do a least one trip to a place that has more winter wildlife than where I live (but not too far from home). I haven’t decided where to go this winter. Back to Vancouver or somewhere different?

One of five beautiful male Mandarin Ducks I was lucky to have come across in Regents Park, London, on Friday.

Superb Fairy-Wren giving me the stare down, or perhaps the person with the hyper dog who walked past right at the moment I had been waiting for all trip - for a wren to perch at eye level. I’m sure the person was lovely and their dog was friendly but I was 🤬 at that moment. Luckily I got a few snaps before the Wren took off. 😁

Aaand stretch! This will be one of my last posts from Ely in mid December. I now have some great content from my last two outings that I can't wait to share ✌️

Red-tailed Hawk giving a stretch. I have a confession to make about this photo 😱 I added an Instagram filter to it! I haven’t used a filter in years, but some reason I decided to mess around with them and I liked this one - Aden, dropped to 30%. Anyone else ever use a sneaky filter on their photos? No judgment here 😊

Bohemian Waxwing basking in the warm winter sun after feasting on berries ☀️ These are one of my favourite winter photography subjects, but they’re a tease. Most of the time you see them in huge flocks flying around and then they’ll land in a nearby tree for all of 10 seconds before flying away. It takes a lot of patience to finally find a group that sticks around.

Tits are very difficult to capture, especially as they flit about so quickly. This Great Tit was no exception, but I succeeded!

The most badass wildlife moment of 2018 🤘 That time I unexpectedly found a Northern Pygmy-Owl with a Bohemian Waxwing prey on a trip to Calgary. The whole forest was alive with songbirds up in arms about this predator being around. I’ve never witnessed such a crazy scene - the owl trying to eat while constantly being dive-bombed by Chickadees, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers and Jays. If 2019 can bring anything as awesome as this, I’ll be surprised (and stoked!). Thanks for all your support this year... looking forward to seeing what wildlife 2019 brings for our amazing community🙏 #ethicalowlphoto

Northern Saw-whet Owl with prey from 2 years ago. I’ve only seen this species three times and it’s special every time. ✨ When I moved from a city to the mountains I thought it would be easier to find owls, but so far it’s actually the opposite. Nonetheless I hope it will become easier with more time. And if not, then it’s always fun to head to the city for a few days! (Yes, kind of weird to go to a city to see wildlife... but this strategy has worked for me ➡️ my Saw-whet encounters were in Vancouver and Ottawa) #ethicalowlphoto

The mighty Osprey - one of my favourite photography subjects on trips to Florida, where they are common and cooperative for photography. I’m doing a bit of a tour of my archives at the moment - not my top 2018 photos, but photos I never posted and are fun to look back on during this reflective time of year. ✨

Artistic capture of an Eastern Screech Owl at dusk. Feeling jaded about the hordes of wildlife photographers at popular locations, Jonathan @jelcockwildlife turned to landscape photography and creative captures of wild subjects at secluded locations. Check out his recent captions for details of his new philosophy and approach.

An old favourite of mine that seemed like the perfect choice for Christmas Day. 🍒 I consider myself a bit of a Bohemian Waxwing on Christmas - eating, drinking and being merry! These birds actually get drunk by eating fermented berries and are a social species, usually always found in big flocks. Wishing you all the best for the holiday season. And don’t forget to add some Bohemian to your day🎄
