MIT & the Click Ponds 12/13/12

Just a few shots from Moccasin Island Tract and the Click Ponds....

A curious Loggerhead Shrike

A loud Eastern Meadowlark...."Can you hear me now?" 

A hungry Wood Stork eating a decaying dead fish...

This was the Stork's reply when I asked how the fish tasted...

Finally, I saw my first Bufflehead at the Click Ponds:)


  1. Beautiful colours in the Easternlark shot. Ours in the uk are pretty dull compared to that with exception of the Shorelark. Have a great Christmas and keep the camera busy.

    1. Thank you, Marc! The Meadowlark is quite colorful! I hope you have a great Christmas also!

  2. Sweet bird treats for my eyes.. thanks for sharing the beauty!

    Congrats on capturing the Bufflehead, Tammy.

    Have a wonderful day :)

  3. Hi Tammy!
    Lovely birdphotos as allways. The wood stork, what a stunning bird.
    greetings from Sweden

  4. Love the Eastern Meadowlark Tammy! A lot more colourful than any of 'our' Larks, which tend to be brown.

  5. Great stories of a place I wish I could have visited!

  6. Muy bonitas capturas Tammy.Saludos

  7. So many nice shots again....i love them all.

    Greetings, Joop

  8. Que bonitas todas las fotos y las especies que nos muestras. La primera es como nuestro alcaudón real.
    SAludos y felices fiestas.

  9. Great portraits of the Shrike and Meadowlark! I can relate to the Wood Stork, prehistoric looking and willing to eat almost anything. I'm jealous of you with your Meadowlark! I can't get one to hold still for anything! Buffleheads are striking in their black and white and just downright cute.

    Hope you have a wonderful Holiday!

  10. Fantastic fantastic fantastic. They are all amazing shots. Seriously....I love all your birds. I think I will be coming out to Florida in March to visit a friend and um...bird:) These are exciting...thanks for sharing! Love that stork....and your Meadowlark!

  11. Hi Tammy!!!.. Very good images .. The shrike similar to Spanish .. Kisses ..

  12. beautiful, as always! love the shrike portrait! :)

  13. Brilliant shooting, my favourite is defecated Wood Stork, lol.

  14. Great shots - I've nerv seen a meadowlark - but every picture I see of them has them perched on a pole belting out a song! Do they do anything else!?

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  15. Here you have got some amazing photos of these beautiful birds, like all very much and think it's fun to see the unknown species.

    I wish you a Merry Christmas!


  16. You have the most interesting birds and they always seem to be possing for you! :)
    xo Catherine

  17. Great photos Tammy, your birds are always doing something interesting. The Wood Stork looks like it's picking out material for a new hat, and the Meadowlark doesn't seem to need it's neon yellow colouring to draw attention to itself, not with a voice like that! So funny :)

  18. Great pictures, they are all very well photographed, compliments.
    Have a nice day, Irma

  19. Beautiful shots! The Meadowlark is fantastic! Apparently, the stork wasn't impressed about having his photo taken!

  20. Brilliant stuff Tammy, I thought the Loggerhead was stunning but the Meadowlark was even more stunning.

  21. Fantastic shots as always, Tammy!
    Love all of them.
    Wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  22. Hahaha!
    The stork's answer is quite humoristic!
    Very nice series of photos, great to discover birds I haven't seen yet!
    Cheers Tammy and enjoy your WE!

  23. Love your captures! And that meadowlark is awesome!

  24. Hola Tammy magnificas capturas.Un fuerte abrazo y Felices Fiestas

  28. You had me laughing out loud with the pooping Wood Stork!

    Congrats on the Bufflehead Tammy.
