Flicker

A member of the woodpecker family, flickers forage on the ground. This gorgeous bird, however, was meandering around when he was far too young to be out of the nest. All's well now, and he is ready for release and a second chance!

put me back in my nest. This baby 'possum isn't interested in a photo sesh. He cared nothing for the camera, so a quick shot and back to where he felt secure and safe. (June 2013)

and I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control and I think I like it." Methinks this little fledgling Cardinal is related to the Pointer Sisters. (June 2013)

Not all images come out as we hope. To minimize stress, we won't use flash and move as quickly as we can...so it doesn't always work out. This precious guy said "Please close my kennel door." (June 2013)

Look WHO's at ACG&SWC

Look WHO's at ACG&SWC

A Northern Saw-Whet Owl, whooo needed a little R&R to soothe a troublesome shoulder, spent a few post Thanksgiving days at Chez ACG&SWC. A stunning fellow (at a Napoleonic 5" high) from his amazing eyes and beautiful beak to his gorgeously textured feathers and cute little toes. A true privilege to meet and photograph this wonderful soul. With help of Suzanne Shoemaker of Owl Moon Raptor Center (see link), our little Napoleon was successfully released on 29 Nov 12!
