A Deer Fawn being Delivered to the Nest

A parent bald eagle delivers a fawn to its nest where there are 3 juvenile eagles. This nest is located along the Yakima River Canyon Road …. a spectacular drive south of Ellensburg. I have followed it for several years … and this was the third consecutive year that the pair had nested there. Over the years watching and photographing the adults bring food to the nest, with exception of this delivery, all were fish.

Curious baby owls

These three baby Western Screech-Owls were looking out of their nest cavity and wondering what human passers-by were doing along Lafayette-Moraga Regional Trail in Lafayette, California. They fledged the next day.

Mommy’s Here

While my mom was sitting outside, she realized that there was a female hummingbird building a nest in our backyard, up in a tree. The hummingbird started sitting in the nest and eventually, the eggs hatched. The baby hummingbirds continued to grow and the mother came to feed them. One day, while my mom and I were watching the hummingbirds, the mother came to feed them. At that moment, I realized that it was the perfect moment to get a photo of the mother feeding her babies. So I grabbed the camera and took a picture while the mother was still feeding and it turned out better then I thought it would!

Up Up and Away

Here swallow babies sit and wait as their mother is out gathering food. When she arrives they are very impatient to be fed. Both struggle to get to mother first. As the little one feeds, it’s older sibling flies over with mouth open to get fed

I’m Hungry Mom

Here a nest was constructed on the fence of our next door neighbors. I could see her fly in and out feeding her young. One day I was able to get my camera at the perfect time to set up and start snapping shots. She brought in several insects to feed her young. It was a very special moment for this bird watcher.

Four Young Finches

These are the same four finches that were begging for food in my other picture. When I checked on them on this day, they were all huddled closely together and all looking at me as I whistled and welcomed them into the world.

Finch Babies Asking for Food

Baby Finches beg for food from their nest, located on our front door. We monitored the actions and safety of our guests from start to finish. We are still greeted by them every day in our bird bath and feeders in our backyard.
