Hi Nick,
A wonderful collection. I'm definitively in love with the meadowlark, there are so colorful. I also love the squirrel shot, it is a very nice one...

Thanks Chris. I don't usually pick favourites from my own photos, but I was very happy to get a decent Northern Shrike after many years :-)

I always enjoy your pictures Nick.
Can almost hear that Western Meadowlark.

Now, what's this article I keep hearing about? Is it online anywhere? Love to see it. :)

Nick S said...

Thanks guys.
Keith, I had an article published in the May edition of Birds & Blooms Extra.
I'm still waiting for my own copy, but you can order it online here :

That shrike is perfect! I love to see them on barbed wire!

So beautiful Nick! That meadowlark looked like he was standing so upright! And how interesting (and appropriate!) to capture that shrike on a barbed wire fence!

Shellmo said...

P.S. Congrats on the article! I'm going to have to pick it up!!

Nick S said...

Thanks for looking :-)
Yes, those Shrikes certainly love to perch on barbed wire.
Perfect for impaling their next meal.
