Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader Tony Eales from Australia sent us some local birds; his notes are indented: One thing that was very obvious on my recent outback trip is the transformation brought about by 2-3 years of good rains. What is normally a very yellow-brown landscape was covered in green growth, and there was standing water in the […]

Willis Tower in the fog

It’s now called the Willis Tower, but Chicagoans mostly know it by its former name: The Sears Tower. It was once the world’s tallest building. Yesterday, when the rain rolled in, our highest building poked proudly above the fog:

Reader’s wildlife (museum) photos

Today we have a change of pace: reader Robert Seidel sent some photos from London’s Natural History Museum, a wonderful Victorian museum that I’ve visited twice.

Readers’ wildlife photos (and video)

It looks as if the pair of American kestrels (Falco sparverius) on Stephen Barnard’s Idaho property (he built them a Kestrel Condo on the side of his garage) may soon be laying eggs. Here is a video of the female, Natasha (the male is Boris), as well as some photos. The first video, says Stephen, “might […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

I’m back in Las Cruces, with several days left to have fun and eat (that’s redundant, isn’t it?). We have two contributions today. The first is a photo from Mike Ross, who hails from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma: I thought you might be interested in the attached photo of a new American bison calf (Bison bison) […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

I’ve received several batches of wildlife photos on the road, but haven’t posted them as it takes a long time to do the travel posts, which I put together in my motel in the evening. Today’s post, from reader Don Bredes in Wheelock, Vermont, is an easy one, though, as it has only two photos. […]

Readers’ wildlife photos (and videos):

As I’ll be traveling till the end of the month starting tomorrow, there will be a hiatus on my saved wildlife photos until I return. But if you send me a batch when I’m on the road, I might put it up then. One never knows. At any rate, we have photos AND videos from […]
