Yesterday’s activities in Antarctica

Good morning from Antarctica! Here’s the sunrise about an hour ago (Friday morning). The weather is perfect, with no clouds, and I’m hoping that there’s not too much ice to cancel our landing in Orne Harbor, which will be our first time to set foot on Antarctica proper. Yesterday we couldn’t land because of ice […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Tomorrow morning is the last time you’ll be able to send in readers’ wildlife photos or photos of yourself (“photos of readers”). Today we have a multi-photographer contribution, beginning with another chipmunk photo by Diana MacPherson. Everyone’s captions are indented. Probably the last Eastern chipmunk [Tamias striatus] of the season. This one was startled & […]

Stephen Barnard has been busy fishing, but he favors us today with a new batch of photos from Idaho. His captions are indented. The first four are rufous hummingbirds (Selasphorus rufus). They migrate through in August and put on quite a show at the feeders. They’re gone now. Next is a moose (Alces alces) across […]

We’re back to readers’ wildlife snaps, and, appropriately, we begin with photos from Stephen Barnard in Idaho, whose notes are indented: Some photos of swallows in flight, feeding on tiny midges (Chironomidae) over Loving Creek. I’ll note that the light was challenging — this has been the coldest, wettest spring I’ve seen here. To get […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Kiwi reader Keith sent a batch of photos which he’ll leave to you to identify. His notes are below: Here is a collection all taken with my cellphone, I’m going to leave them “silent”. I have no idea what some species are, while others speak for themselves. They’re all taken around or from my home […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Please send me any good wildlife photos you have, as I am fretting over the lowering level of my photo tank. Thanks! Today we have some photos by Joe Dickinson, whose captions are indented: Here is a second set from Tomales Bay/Point Reyes. [JAC: see first set here.] I think these are least sandpipers (Calidris […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Since Stephen Barnard sent his recent batch of photos to me in one dollop, and I posted half of them yesterday, here is the other batch; Stephen’s notes are indented: The second batch is a mixed bag. First, a couple of duck mated pairs: Cinnamon Teals (Anas cyanoptera) and Gadwall (Mareca strepera). The next three are […]

There were big […]
