You Don’t See That Too Often
Sometimes birds pop up in unexpected areas and photographers flock to capture them. Other-times bird photographers stumble across a rare bird while just walking along a path. Either way they present us with some exciting photographs – like these!
We know that Wood Ducks roost in trees (which seems odd for a duck) but we rarely see them there. That’s why it was such a pleasure to see Asteinmann’s classic photo of a male Wood Duck perched like a songbird on a limb. These birds are easily flushed so its hard to get a picture like this – great job!
Emil Baumbach, along with many others, sought out a rare Marbled Godwit in nearby Waukegan. Read his description about sighting this bird.
JackReich was hiking along in the Farmington Spine area of Utah and was pleasantly surprised to find a Dusky Grouse. Grouse are notoriously skittish so congrats for getting close enough to get a wonderful closeup!
