Readers’ wildlife photos

I believe that reader Paul Doerder, a biology professor at Cleveland State, hasn’t provided photos before, so this batch is his first, and nice ones they are.  His comments are indented: I’m inspired by your reader’s photographs. Some day, after my imminent retirement, I hope to work on my numerous plant and fungi pictures, if only […]

Reader Ichneumonid sends two photos of mammals from a recent trip: A couple of shots of (large) rodents from a recent trip to Brazil for your consideration First an Agouti from Brazil.

Today we’ll have a batch sent by reader Stephen Barnard of Idaho, who has a backlog of great pictures: Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis): [JAC: I hope I’m not mixing this up with the red-tailed hawk shown below] The first Trumpeter […]

There are no prizes, but this photo, sent by reader Jonathan Wallace, is cool: UPDATE: Jonathan sent this information with the photo: It is a  Herring Gull (Larus argentatus) on the roof of a factory. ~  

Readers’ wildlife photos

The readers’ wildlife tank is running low again; I don’t have my usual comfortable backlog. Send in good photos, please. From reader John Harshman: Wait, I have more from my trip to Australia. A laughing kookaburra (Dacelo novaehollandiae). He was sitting on a fence, periodically descending to the ground to dig earthworms. You can see the dirt on […]
