Indigo Bunting Breeding Male


Male Indigo Bunting in full blue mature breeding colors. A beautiful little bird. Said to be relatively common in the east, but this is my first video capture. Like their much rarer cousins the Painted Buntings, they like heavy brush near open areas. This one was making quick rounds of seeds fallen on the Ground in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.

Giant Millipede Meditation



Millipedes or "Thousand Leggers" really don't have a thousand legs, but they have a lot. A meditations on this fascinating creature set to ambient music with natural birds sounds in the background. Whatever your reaction to millipedes in the past I encourage you to observe the beauty of this creature as it goes about its business among the leaf litter in the Great Smoky Mountains - A UNESCO World Heritage Site for its natural beauty and incredible bio-diversity - which includes an amazing array of magnificent Millipedes.

Rose Breasted Grosbeak



Male Rose Breasted Grosbeak is a striking bird with his Superman Shield and this is a first- time species capture for me - always exciting!  Video is a bit shaky at very long range as the bird worked the tree canopy for insects with its heavy bill, but managed to get one clear shot .This bird is at the extreme southern end of its summer range, Western North Carolina's Great Smoky Mountains and in early May it may just be passing through. It is also at the lower end of its elevation range this far south - around 3,600 feet. These birds are known to spend summers in the Great Smoky's at high elevations.

Broad Winged Hawk Takes Off



Broad Winged Hawk in the Great Smoky Mountains takes off about 60 high atop a big Yellow Buckeye Tree. As is often the case they get chased off by much smaller birds on the offensive as these hawks prey mostly on birds. This video was taken at long range at 1365 mm with the 2x digital tele-converter enabled. A little shaky but not bad considering.

Wild Turkey Mother's Day



Mother's Day will be busy for this Wild Turkey with six kids called poults. I love the expression of concern and the time and extreme caution she uses in getting the youngsters across the road and they  seemingly have not a care in the world!

Great Crested Flycatchers Build Nest in Owl Box



Great Crested Flycatchers have again begun building their nest in the Eastern Screech Owl Nest Box after waiting patiently for them to finish nesting. I believe the Flycatchers had to do a bit of cleaning and remodeling to remove the "Owl Funk" by covering the wood chips first with a layer of long-leaf pine needles! The Red Bellied Woodpeckers took a pass on the box.
