mink heavy day. 1 of 4 adults seen, 2 possibly 3 babies seen. really cute of course. 1 baby was in mom's mouth as she swam across the river, another was on mom's back who then ducked into the roots and returned with no baby. cute jelly bean toes. might be the best mink day, i'll ever have - not sure it can be topped. at one point i was within inches of one watching me take a photo of a liverwort. didn't know it was there. they were easily the highlight of the tirp along with cave salamander. also saw otter, but didn't get the photo.

"they grow up so fast" - found as a little white bug on the kitchen floor, in 20 minutes it had it's wings, 8 hours it was fully colored. used the internet to make an acceptable enclosure, enjoyed it throughout the day, and released it in the evening. never heard it call, but we are leaving in the am, and can't cycle water and want it to live a full life, otherwise i might have kept it a few more days for song purposes. honestly, it'd break our heart if after 13/17 years, he just died in our kitchen, granted it broke our hearts having our cicada nest emptied. so tiny and cute, little more than an inch. would just love to tickle his toes! brought us lot's of joy.

go henry go, go find a partner. you've got this! 13 years, 17 years, whatever - that's nothing, go on and get some of the world henry! thanks for sharing your day with us, you are easily one of the coolest cicada's we've seen. climb to the top of that maple and sing your heart out!

!! awesome !!
decided to walk back to my parked car the long way for about 100 yards more, and i saw/heard a longspur flock land 200 yards away. seemingly coming from nowhere (many birders out that day, someone must have flushed them). i approached carefully, but long before i could see them, they flushed. they went to another field, stayed there for a minute, flew and rattled again, into another field. 1 minute later they came back to the original spot i saw them, where i was conveniently and readily located. upon landing they were not vocal. they clearly didn't mind my presence, as i got to watch them feed for at least half an hour. love a little brown job, they were like mice, scurrying about. probably my county bird of the month. outside of a few oddballs that might show up in the future, i think i got all the birds on this property list, so thankfully can put this place on the never have to go back again list.

saw these big beautiful birds on the side of the road, and luckily had a pull out. we watched them for about 10 minutes before a local in a loud smelly mufferlless car passed, saw me, made eye contact. then proceeded to slam on the breaks, slam on the gas, make a bunch of noise and smells. my heart was dropping, as i expected them to fly away. they just walked off, and he drove away. then 2 more cars showed up and they hopped out of their cars! luckily the birds were a ways away at that point. we got out and talked to them. it was a sweet local taking her daughter and out of town friend to see them. seh was old enough to remember them as a child, and then mentioned a few local things to visit (house graves where family was buried).

simply amazing to see these. everything about this observation was just perfect. we heard them before seeing them, thinking we were on the right path. this was my third time looking, my partners 2nd since we found out about them. watching them forage with ducks coming and going, with a nice farmstead/barn/windmill in the background is/was pretty cool. when we visually found them, there were a lot of ducks between us, and they were flying everywhere. we thought we wouldn't get a good look, so took to crawling 50 yards to hide under the grass and get to a good spot to watch. so much goose and duck poop everywhere... but probably worth it (worth it until i come down with a sickness). need to put hand sanitizer in the day pack, as i kept thinking of that while we had our snacks and watched the cranes. eventually they walked off and flew away, and i just happened to be ready for it with my camera. at this point they bugled a bunch, but became 2 distant to get good audio. the laughs/calls of the nearby geese/ducks as our audio backdrop was also cool, and fortunate timing to get almost evening light from the perfect direction for photos. we found 17 of the known 21.

makes me so happy seeing these somewhat local, and just have to say that this property is currently is producing magic and can't wait to try come back in a new season with new life forms. i'm very curious if they just live there all the time, or they eventually move on?

really awesome encounter with a short eared owl during twilight hour. watched it for a solid 20 minutes. this is the 2nd time i've observed short eared owl at this location, the other time there were 2 and it was a lot later in the day.

this guy was super relaxed with 3 vehicles. we were at a distance as we were last to the party and didn't want to scare it off. the others just kept trying to inch closer until they drove off the road, missed the parking lot and got stuck, or something? the drifts were really high right there. at that point we didn't care about etiquette and moved to get closer ourselves. it worked out, the bird stayed we got some great looks and the people in the stuck car, just stayed insided it (super cold out).

other than 1 lone swan, a few typical red tailed hawks, and a dozen harriers, it was the only bird around. more cards than birds.

really glad we got to see this one close and get some nice photos. thanks to my partner for bringing me super luck.

been wanting to see this one for awhile! i'm a sucker for small sparrow like birds. this experience was great - i've been trying to get photos of western meadowlark and had got out of my car to get a few better photos. was watching those meadowlarks for a solid 15 minutes - only to notice i was surrounded by longspurs. they were withing 5 foot of me, and in all 4 cardinal directions. i focused on a small group in the direction i was facing, so as to not scare the flock. 50+ total. unfortunately i didn't have my phone with me to record the audio - but did get to hear a multitude of calls/songs. after noticing them, i stopped paying attention to the meadowlarks and they flew off without me noticing. so i'll have to try again for the western, but this was way cooler, for my bird tastes. at least 7 birds in the last shot. the lighting was absolutely breathtaking, and can't believe the universe unfolded this experience in front of my appreciating eyes.

i have one more day since i started a bird heavy push with a STL field trip, not sure if i'll go out or just let this be my final memory of the week. did manage to take several shots of the meadowlarks - got some great eastern photos and a few possible westerns. still some time left this winter to check them off the list and hope it happens!

brutal!

heard some commotion in the tree, then all of a sudden a mass fell out 30+ft with a thud. surprised the hek out of us, then we started looking and was kind of horrified. this landed like 10 foot away...

as a kid we called these black snakes, but i now know there are many types.

i had gone looking for nighthawks for 4 or 5 days in a row. checked out capen, forum nature area, and stephens lake park. no luck. happened to be outside talking to a neighbor, and then they started weaving between our houses, cars, trees, and power poles. really cool probably 4-5 of them. after that neighbor went inside another neighbor saw me doing something, and inquired. had a nice conversation of quail, whip or wills, chuck wills widow, and birds in general. turns out they were really familiar with inat :D

also saw a huge flock of 40ish northeast of como on route z, out by hallsville. those were feeding on a soybean field.

unfortunately i haven't seen them in the day yet, which i'd really love. i'd also really like to see one perched, at some point. but this will have to do for now. just behavior .gif and silhouette shots. a few of the still shots you can see pixelated white wing bands.
