Rapture ~ Vervoering

De Amerikaanse zeearend of witkopzeearend (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) mag dan over de gehele wereld wel een voorbeeldvogel zijn van gracieuze macht en vliegkunst, alsook een bijbels voorbeeld van zorg, de mens zijn onzorgvuldige omgang met de natuur had deze wonderbaarlijke vogels bijna uitgeroeid.
Gelukkig hebben zorgvuldige maatregelen voor milieubehoud en inspanningen voor biologische herintroductie in het Noordelijk halfrond bijgedragen aan het herstel van de verschillende adelaarspopulaties en hebben er voor gezorgd dat wij deze prachtvogels weer prachtfiguren zien maken in de lucht.

Cheers to you from the eagles who look to us for their survival~

Note: Bald Eagle populations were decimated in the wild in the United States. Careful environmental conservation measures and biological reintroduction efforts have helped restore bald eagle populations. Dismantling environmental protections may bring bald eagles back to the brink of extinction and beyond. Their survival is up to us.

They stand out.

As if they sense,

Won’t let me get near.

I so look forward to another season of their antics. They make scrub jays seem shy, quiet and retiring by comparison!
DSC02181
The Black Headed Grosbeaks arrived with the Orioles.
DSC02186
They are much shyer birds but hopefully they will assert themselves a bit more with the orioles this season.
DSC02221
These birds have such powerful beaks they can crack sunflower seeds in one chomp!
DSC02329 (2)
They seem to be arriving in greater numbers which is encouraging.

The Bullocks Orioles are new arrivals at The Holler this year. They are less assertive than their hooded cousins and can be identified by the black stripe across their eyes.

The California Thrashers live at The Holler year round, and stay mostly on the ground where they run around in such a…
