More from Circle B…

The area occupied by Circle B Bar Reserve was once a cattle farm.  It was purchased through an environmental lands acquisition referendum and the land is now home to many birds and other wildlife.  Once I had spotted the Roseate Spoonbills the bird that would have been at the top of my list to see after that would have been owls.  Except I saw these Barred owls before I saw the spoonbills.  Where to see them was pointed out to me as soon as I got there, and I knew that at least one of my wishes for the day had come true already. 1-7owl1 copy1-7owl2 copy1-7owl3 copy But in addition we have the Anhinga, one of which passed though my backyard today, stopping for a moment on the post usually occupied by the little blue heron… 1-7anhinga1 copy1-7anhinga2 copyThe Limpkin, which I’m told eats apple snails…1-7limpkin copyThe Red-sholdered Hawk, another of my backyard visitors …1-7hawk copy1-7hawk2 copyThe Green Heron, another new bird to me…1-7greenheron copyThe Great Egret, not an uncommon bird to see but always so pretty…1-7greategret copyAs you can see, it was a great day.  I’ll be heading back again, but I’ll be happy to go when it’s a little warmer than Saturday was.  It warmed up nicely though, but not until it was time for me to leave.

    1. Don’t forget I have Merlin in my back pocket all the time. He keeps me from embarrassing myself. The other day I saw a Downey woodpecker, I thought, but someone else said it was a Yellow bellied sap sucker. I think I was right, LOL.

    1. Well thanks H.J. I’ve been shooting in RAW and then struggling with Lightroom for editing. (I had had Photoshop down pat, at least for what I do with it.) But those owls were in the shadows and I was totally thrilled with what could be done with them, so I’m a believer now. So I suppose I’ll have to keep on struggling until I get it.

      1. Your doing right Sue, just need a bit more practice with Lightroom. I use it too and PS because is more complete. I do use RAW because it has the great potential to preserve all info of the image generated by the camera giving a chance to correct whatever went wrong. If you have any questions be free to ask me.
