Randy, if that frog was on a branch you would never see him...gorgoeous coloration.

To those of you who Cornell Bird's there is a new live web cam of a Great Blue Heron...check it out.  The red tailed hawk now has three eggs and it is just beautiful to watch.  They both have sound too.  On the Eagle home front at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, poor ole dad is sititng on an empty nest still bringing fish to the nest and calling for one of the two females that are still around.  #2 female comes by occasionally and #4 chases her off but #4 doesn't stay around and looks like she isn't planning a family this year.  Too late we think anyway if they started now.  Maybe next year.

Very nice pictures, Randy.  Spring is here, but no frogs that I have seen.

Good! I know some would disagree with me but it's better than loosing the frogs.

They have a construction project on hold in Oquawka, IL. now because of tree frogs.

Lovely photos Beth.

Thank you for that lovely picture of the Sand Hill Crane.  If I ever saw one in the wild, I would be so thrilled.  that limpkin is so well  protected by its coloring.  Love all the pictures.  We have been in NJ and VA for the past week, but didn't see any interesting birds.  Just seagulls at LIberty Park near the Statue of Liberty.

Wonderful picture, Beth. Gail had posted a picture of one walking the streets in Florida on another site. I really enjoyed seeing all the wildlife from around the country and world. One of my fav. things about the internet!
