A Hamerkop builds a nest in this photo we took at Abuko Nature Reserve in The Gambia in January 2007.
We saw this Blue Tit looking for seeds during an evening walk in La Petite Pierre, France, in May 2008.
Blue Tits are another common back yard bird here in the Netherlands and they are known as being acrobatic in their antics. They are a lot of fun to watch.
We took this photo of a singing male Chaffinch earlier this year when we visited the Vosges nature park in the Alsace region of France.
Chaffinches are fairly common back yard birds here where we live and we’ve enjoyed watching them at our feeders.

We took this photo while on a jeep safari in India’s Ranthambhore National Park in March 2006.
The Rufuos Treepie is similar to the familiar Magpies of North America and Europe. This guy was begging for scraps and posing for photos at a ranger checkpoint.
When Mallards are feeding, you may find them in this position more than any other.

I was looking for images for my Rajasthan Birding Squidoo lens (it needs work, I know) when I found this great shot of a Crested Serpent Eagle. Crested raptors are so cool, don’t you think?

This photo, titled “loons in the mist,” was taken at Big Elbow Lake in Minnesota. The Common Loon, also known as the Great Northern Diver, is the state bird of Minnesota.
I just about cry every time I read the story of the California Condor (or any endangered or extinct species, actually). You can help by donating to the Ventana Wildlife Society in Big Sur, California.

I hope I can see one someday.
