They’re taking over … 😉
Hitchcock would be proud. Thanks, David.
How gorgeous Timothy. And I ❤️ the 🦉.!
Thanks, Gabriela. Mama and Daddy are hanging out in their favorite spot, which means owlets in a few months.
My pleasure. I can’t wait. And again thank you so much for sharing those gorgeous pictures. Hogs to everyone 🤗
What kinds of duck is that? It is a duck, right?
Love the owls and the skies….
It’s a punk duck. I can’t remember what it is right off hand. The owls are working on making more little owls. Thanks, Dale.
I love it. It’s so cool! Punk Duck it is! 😀
I love that they are working on a new family.
The duck is a female Common Merganser. Still a punk duck.
I knew you knew what it was. I’m with you. Punk duck!
I had to look it up. I’m a bad birder because I can’t remember what the specific bird names are.
Haha! I was going to as well. I am a horrid birder! But I keep taking their pics and others and Google image help me 🙂
I like general names for birds like it’s a pretty bird. punk duck, pterodactyl, etc.
I am in like Flynt with ya!
Absolutely stunning. Oh those owls!
The punk ducks, are going to show the world what they had and what they got. I lovr how they skid in and make the water body their floating bed. They are so skilled at that.
The horny owls are so shy and cute but they can’t hide the intentions, least of all from the cameraman in the wood.
But they got a good story to back their hornyness, baby owl intentions.
Love all the images.
Who is the long’legged making great effort to find balance in the sky?
Hi abvr.The photo of the bird with its landing gears down is a Sandhill Crane. Thanks.
Exquisite, stunning pair of legs, and with those flappers she will twist a little with a graceless out of breath land.
What a beautiful set of photos, Tim! You are very attuned to the bosque, the river and skies, capturing the beauty and life of the area.
Thanks, Lavinia. They all work together to make it special.
All shots stunning, Tim. Colors in the sky mesmerizing; and owls looking as amazing as ever, with a nice close up tonight.
Beautiful photos of life on the Bosque, Tim. So many critters and landscapes! Thanks for sharing them with us.
You are welcome, Juanita. Thanks, for dropping by and commenting.
Owls, mergansers and beautiful skies, can’t get better than that!
These are really nice bird pictures, Timothy.
Painter set a wonderful scene for all your feathered friends!
Hmm… looks like Mama and Daddy Owl are up to something! 😉
A little owl hanky panky I would say. Thanks, Marina.
Lots of beauties here .
Love it all… especially the owls!
We love all these birds, dear Timothy. Nicely photographed.
Thanks for showing.

Thanks, Fab Four.
Oh wow, Timothy, this was a splendid series embracing the Rio Grande and the Sandias and all the beauty that surrounds you. The sunset photos are spectacular, great seeing your GHO friend in that light, fantastic series of the merganser, and a great treat to see the sandhill cranes. My favorite is that first photo. I sat with it for several minutes. Truly a treat, thank you.
Thanks, Jet. I’m happy you liked it.
Ah, you have displayed all the lovely things! The THT, the Owl, the birds and the Sand Hill Cranes ( yesterday I saw a lone Sandhill Crane calling out, I assumed it had Lost it’s mate or baby) and the gorgeous sky ! Thank you dear Timothy.
You are welcome, Holly. I’m happy you got to see your tree with a glorious backdrop.
It’s a joy to behold. So beautiful! Thank you Timothy!
You live in an bird sanctuary. Or rather you create the environment that attracts winged friends to your place. Spectacular, Tim.
Thanks, Rebecca. The bosque is a birding area and we get lots of birders coming through looking for some rare sightings. A lot of different birds follow the Rio Grande as part of the migratory routes. It really is a bird sanctuary in the bosque and along the river.
A gluttony of beauty, no less!
Meanwhile…. back in the snow banked streets of Toronto… a gluttony of yuck.
Okay, the owls… nesting time?
Need to get to Spunk’s post!
Thanks, Resa. The owls won’t nest until the end of February or early March.
lucky birds in Holly’s tree and your glorious pics Tim!
I notice one of the owls eyes has feathers around it and one appears it doesn’t. Is that just the lighting.
I think it’s the light on the eyes or the Eagle. Thanks, Cindy.
oh interesting.. You’re so welcome! 💖
As always, awesome pics, Tim.
