Yellow-Crested Night-Heron

Took this video on my first visit to Constitution Lake in Southwest Atlanta. I almost walked onto the deck without looking, which would most likely have scared it away, but fortunately, I caught sight of it in time. I could tell immediately it was some member of the heron family, but it took a search … Continue reading Yellow-Crested Night-Heron

Blue Heron, 24 April 2017, Chamblee, GA

I spent about fifteen minutes following a blue heron around a pond near my office this morning and making video clips, which I edited in iMovie. This is the finished product. There's been at least one, maybe multiple herons visiting the pond here for several years, but I'm not certain this is the same one … Continue reading Blue Heron, 24 April 2017, Chamblee, GA

Zebra Finch, Chamblee, GA, July, 2016

While walking around Century Center in Chamblee Monday, I encountered an odd looking little bird I'd never seen before. Investigation on the Internet uncovered that it's a male zebra finch, which is not native to North America, but the species has been introduced, possibly as pets or for research. I'm not sure how this one … Continue reading Zebra Finch, Chamblee, GA, July, 2016

Great Blue Heron, Chamblee, GA (Photos & Video)

There's been a Great Blue Heron visiting a pond near where I work and I've had the opportunity to get some video and photos of it. I haven't seen it the past few times I went over there this week, but one's been dropping in there on occasion for a few years, so I'm sure … Continue reading Great Blue Heron, Chamblee, GA (Photos & Video)

Ecological Meltdown

We satisfy our endless needs and justify our bloody deeds in the name of yesterday and in the name of God - The Eagles The earth's ecosystem didn't pop up overnight. It has developed over billions of years, and humans have only been a part of it for a few hundred thousand at most. This … Continue reading Ecological Meltdown

Four Geese and a Duck, Stone Mountain, 25 March 2016

10 June 2016: I have learned that what I've been identifying as a duck below is actually a Greater White-fronted goose. This explains some inconsistencies I noted in how it behaved. We live and learn. I went for a walk at Stone Mountain Friday, 25 March and took some video of two pairs of geese … Continue reading Four Geese and a Duck, Stone Mountain, 25 March 2016

Pelican Preening, Myrtle Beach, SC, 8 October 2015

On our first day at Myrtle Beach, my brother pointed out this pelican. At first, it was crouched down and somewhat lethargic, but after I'd taken a walk around, I came back to discover it preening itself. It has a rather noticeable gash on its lower beak, which may hinder its ability to fish, and … Continue reading Pelican Preening, Myrtle Beach, SC, 8 October 2015
