Readers’ wildlife photos

May 4, 2021 • 8:00 am

Please send in your good wildlife photos. Thanks!

Today we have another installment of photos from Stephen Barnard in Idaho, titled “Fowl That Aren’t Ducks.” His captions are indented, and you can enlarge his photos by clicking on them.

Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus). Very tame.

Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens). Also tame.

Male and female Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus). An example of sexual dimorphism.

Male American Kestrel (Falco sparverius).

Mated pair of Sandhill Cranes (Grus canadensis), singing a duet across the creek. An example of sexual monomorphism.

American Avocet (Recurvirostra americana)

  1. Loved the head shot of the sandhill cranes. They remind me of a couple a grandparents yelling: “Get off my lawn!” Great photos, but where are the ducks. 😉
