Moon in Tangle Heart Tree at sunset
We have cloud cover tonight with snow predicted by early morning. Therefore, I’m posting the birds I photographed yesterday.

Actually, there were two flickers at the tiptop of Susan’s Tree at dawn.
The Canadian Geese complained that I have not been giving them enough attention.

Beautiful as always Tim……🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
You’re welcome Tim😎💐🙏🏼
Woah, that flicker bird is magnificent! I have never seen one before in my life. It’s so beautiful. I do often see geese flying together, though! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Hi Linda. Flickers are woodpeckers. They are beautiful and very fast flyers.
Yay! I hope to experience them one day. 🙂
Nice assortment of birds. Flickers are common up here, but I have not seen one as fat as those! Food supply might be more to their liking at the Bosque…
Hi Susan. It was only 20º out. I think they had their feathers fluffed.
Wow. I need me a better zoom!
These are fantabulous, Timothy.
Thanks, Dale. This lens is equivalent to 640mm, but the photos of the flickers are still really cropped. They were way up in the tree.
Splendid pictures, Timothy
A beautiful assortment of birds, donkey, and the moon in the tangleheart tree at sunset is a lovely photo, too.
20 degrees is cold!
Thanks, Lavinia. I brave the elements with the critters.
Brilliant catching the moon in the heart, Tim! A wonder of wildlife for us to view, thanking you!
You are welcome, Inchcock. Thanks for stopping by.
Very nice photos, Timothy. Cooper’s hawks are rare around here, and always a thrill to see. Thanks for sharing yours.
So many beautiful birds! I like the pattern of the flicker’s plumage. The way, the Cooper’s Hawk watches out for prey is very similar to his European realtive, Accipiter nisus
Thanks, Puzzleblume. The raptors have similar behaviors.
Amazing captures! Looking forward to snow pictures!
Sorry to say, only wind so far. Thanks, Nancy.
Ah, so many beautiful feathered friends around and a lonely but adorable donkey…
Thanks, Marina. But the donkey has several fine feathered friends grazing with her.
I suppose so. I do wonder though, what language they speak! 😉
I assume they speak Animalize.
Or Shree-haw… it’s a mix of donkey/bird language! 😉
What a wondrous collection. With Marina, I like the donkey too! Flickers are larger than most woodpeckers, but when they fluff up to stay warm even larger!
Thanks, Mary Jo. Flickers are good sized birds and they puff up nicely. The donkey is cute grazing with the cranes.
Stunning photos, but I’ve fallen in love with the flickers and their matching twigs.
Thanks, Tish. Flickers are beautiful birds.
Beautiful, Tim! I love that flicker, gorgeous bird! I don’t think I am familiar with them.
Wonderful shots, Timothy. Love the goose in flight.
What beautiful shots, Tim. I particularly enjoyed seeing the flickers. The other night I got a good look at that sliver of a moon. There’s something so intriguing to me about that phase of the moon. I hope you don’t get more snow than you want. I haven’t looked at the forecast here… but any sort of moisture would be welcome. It seems like a very long time since we’ve had any. Hugs on the wing.
No snow. Only cold wind. Moon phases are fascinating. Thanks, Teagan.
Wow these are divine Tim! 👏
yesterday’s birds, tomorrow’s parties
