Some cool tree bud I saw on my birding walk this afternoon. I love the tiny wrinkled leaves.

Saw these bell-shaped flowers this morning. It was super cold and actually snowed for a few minutes.

Just look at those 3 cute little babies looking up at the parent.

I looked it up and both parents will sit on the nest, though the Mother usually spends more time on it.

OMG, the parent got up and there's 3 fuzzy baby Bald Eagles it was sitting on! It's feeding them right now!

I'm excited that I think I finally fixed the oldest bug in my game Kick Bot tonight. It's been in our bug list for 2 years!

One of the other Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers I saw at the same time. I think this one is a juvenile that is just starting to get its adult plumage.

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Louisville, Kentucky, 11/08/2020

This was only my second time seeing this species. There were two sapsuckers chasing each other circling around a tree trunk. I'm so glad some of my photos turned out.

I heard one reason birds will spread their wings and sunbathe is because it will kill mites and other parasites that live on their feathers.

Look at the iridescence on its neck feathers. Also its legs are super long.

American Crow, Louisville, Kentucky 11/07/2020.

Birds have weird eyelids. You can see the crow's eyelid closed in the second photo.

Do you think birds ever stare in awe at the sunset and think "this is amazing"?

Here's a daytime moon photo I took on 11/17/2020. It's so cool to see all the craters.

Here's a hawk from my backyard on 10/25/2020. Maybe a Cooper's Hawk? I have a hard time telling them apart.

Personal instance for myself.
