Readers’ wildlife photos

We have a new contributor: reader Karen Bartelt from my own state. She sent a passel of bird photos and some commentary: I have been enjoying WEIT for about 6 months.  Though my photos in no way compare in quality with some of the wonderful shots on WEIT, an experience last week prompted me to […]

Readers’ wildlife (and astronomy) photos

Today we have a nice astronomy picture, but first the beasts, a series (including SQUIRRELS) from reader and photographer Peter Moulton in Phoenix, Arizona: I’ve been hosting a lovely cold for the last couple of weeks (plant allergies seem to have taken over lately), so all my photography has been the low-impact type, at the […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Here are have three long-billed curlews (Numenius americanus) from reader Stephen Barnard, who notes: “This is a new bird for me, #83 on the Aubrey Spring Ranch species list.” Reader Randy from Iowa sent three photos of a bird I don’t think we’ve had here before: This is the first day I have seen the Baltimore […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

First off are a northern harrier (Circus cyaneus) and a great blue heron (Ardea herodias) from Stephen Barnard of Idaho (I lost the email, so correct me if the IDs are wrong): Reader Ed Kroc from the Vancouver area sent a picture-story of nature red in tooth, claw, and beak: I thought I’d send along a […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Colin Franks of Colin Franks Photography (his photo page here, Facebook page here) has sent me a large group of lovely bird pictures. I’ll put up only a third of them today, as I don’t want to sate you with feathered beauty. Ruby-crowned Kinglet  (Regulus calendula): Spotted Towhee (Pipilo maculatus): Northern Pintail (Anas acuta): Red […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

The tank is about 3/4 full of readers’ photos, so if yours hasn’t appeared don’t worry. And I’m always looking for good wildlife photos, so send yours in—though be aware that it could be up to two months before they appear if they are good. I try to let readers know when their photos are up. […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

First, an update on Stephen Barnard’s eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) parents, Desi and Lucy, who are raising at least two chicks. We have a magnificent photo showing a parent arriving; do notice the little gray chick in the nest (middle). And then Stephen’s video of Desi bringing a fish. Lucy vocalizes loudly: “Where’s that goddam fish? The kids are starving!” Reader […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

First, our regular chick on Stephen Barnard’s bald eagle nursery. There are now two chicks visible, and you can see them being fed (well, at least one of them) in this video. (Click to enlarge.) Two eagle chicks. One is getting the short end. Reader Ronaldo Bartl sent a variety of photos from South America: […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

First, let’s check on Stephen Barnard’s eagles.  He’s reported now that there are at least two chicks: he’s seen a pair and there may be more.  However, we don’t yet have a photo. But we do have a picture of parental care with Stephen’s caption: Getting everything just right. Watch out for the kids! I don’t […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

I’ve decided that Saturday’s edition of RWP will henceforth be shorter than usual, as this day always includes a special cat feature.  But although the quantity of readers’ photos may fall on Caturdays, the quality will not. Reader Colin Campbell contributed four bird photos using an unusual camera rig: Here are several pictures taken this winter […]
