Hope the Buzzard pair don't get any disturbance. A great chance to follow their progress.

It's always a pleasure to travel remotely with you on your ringing expeditions, Phil. The barn owl is my favourite of the day, because I've always loved owls and this one is so lovely in flight.
I hope further ringing trips are more productive for you. Meanwhile, hugs from here to you and Sue.

2018-04-16T22:04:45.479+01:00

I hear owls but have yet to see one near our cabin. One reason is that the forest is solid right next to where we live, no trails to explore. - Margy

The owl in flight is spectacular but I also have a fondness for the LBJs of this world and the tree pipit is a sweet example! From your description, it would be lovely to hear as well as to see!



What a wonderful photo of the Barn Owl in flight!

Phil - I am getting addicted to your owl pictures ... we are in our new house as of Saturday and I have already seen many more birds than we saw in our 'town' environment - mountain bluebird, sandhill cranes, and an eagle eating carrion by the side of the road. I will have to start perfecting my bird photography skills!

Some interesting birds banded there and I just love the barn owl, fabulous. Have a good week Diane

2018-04-15T14:19:58.112+01:00

Good morning Phil: I am glad to hear that you were able to get out and do a little banding even though the results were not entirely what you might have hoped for. You had quality birds, however. Maybe when the tree leafs out the Buzzard's nest will not be quite as visible and people will leave it alone. Kids sometimes seem to be unable to resist throwing rocks at birds and a prominent nest like this might well attract the wrong kind of attention from them, to say nothing of the actions of misguided adults.
This weekend we are having a monumental ice storm here so I have been pretty much housebound and it looks for all the world like the dead of winter outside. Spring, which seemed to be putting in an appearance, has vanished for the moment, and the early migrant birds must be suffering.

The lighting of the owl in flight is true perfection Phil! It's a grand day for birding & banding when the weather cooperates, isn't it.

For this week, I send my thanks to you for sharing with us bird lovers at I'd Rather B Birdin'!

2018-04-15T01:26:49.333+01:00

Love the photo of the barn owl in flight! The weather here has probably really confused our poor birds (and the people). Seventies yesterday afternoon and cold, rainy evening with snow forecast for overnight. Hope you're having a great weekend!

I have only seen one owl out during the day and I did get a fairly good picture of him. Love this one in flight. Have a wonderful weekend.



Great shots!

2018-04-14T18:27:42.846+01:00

Today's weather in my part of the UK has been far more Spring-like, and this afternoon there were butterflies dancing in the air - so wonderful to see.

You've shared a nice selection of birds here Phil, but that barn owl in flight is just amazing.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

All the best Jan

School holidays, car service and MOT sounds a bit like us too Phil ...

But of course we didn't get to see as many birds as you ... lovely to see your photographs.

All the best Jan

2018-04-14T16:19:32.978+01:00

The Golden Plover is a beauty. Love the markings. So sad they are hunted. I've been chasing what I believe to be an american pipit, but so far haven't been able to get a good enough shot to make sure. Have a wonderful weekend.

2018-04-14T15:55:41.901+01:00

I always worry for Barn Owls seen during the day although as you say, the breeding season necessitates daytime hunting. I was pleased to see one 'just over the bridge' before dusk last weekend.

Buzzards have shown such a resurgence in recent times, which is all the more remarkable considering the shocking ignorance shown by so many who quite incorrectly regard them as the enemy.

Jay and Mistle Thrush have been in the garden of late; both are such striking and surprisingly large birds.

Regards.

Hello, it is sad to hear of any bird's decline for any reason. I love all these birds, the Barn owl, Avocet and Gold Plovers are all gorgeous. The Pipit is pretty. Love the cute Brown Hare. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

2018-04-13T20:19:00.463+01:00

Love the Avocet, what a pretty bird but my favourite is the barn owl.
I cannot understand hunting of any animals, it just gets my hackles up. It will not be long before (thanks to man) that many birds and animals will be extinct. They blame climate change but that has little to do with it, the gun is doing far more harm thanks to hunters and poachers alike.
Hope you have a good weekend. The weather here is slowly improving and I saw our first lizards of 2018 in the garden today. Diane

2018-04-13T17:51:49.347+01:00

Sounds like you have had a forced break in birding lately. That's never a good thing!

Happily, you're in the field and seeing birds again! Simply spotting a Barn Owl would certainly get my adrenaline pumping for the remainder of the year. They are very scarce in our area.

Hunting Golden Plovers - I can't wrap my head around that.

As much as I agree with your sentiment about aggressive avocets, I fall into the camp of letting nature handle the situation. I very often don't like the results of Her decisions, but once we humans start messing about trying to "fix" Her, well, disaster seems to ensue.

Looks as if your weekend weather may give you a bit of a respite and I hope you're able to take advantage with some ringing and enjoyable birding.

All on this side of the pond in our sub-tropical paradise is good.

Take care, Phil!
