As the morning sun shines from behind, a male willow ptarmigan takes flight near deadhorse, on alaska’s north slope. the sun shines 24 hours a day in deadhorse (prudhoe bay) and the birds are active as well. the willow ptarmigan are one of two species of ptarmigan found in this northern region, the second is the rock ptarmigan. they are medium sized birds in the quail, partridge, and pheasant family. •:|:•

North of fairbanks, alaska a peregrine falcon flies over head on a cloudy day and checks me out. peregrine falcons live on every continent except antarctica. they are quite adaptable, and can be found in cities, rural areas, and in remote locations. i have been photographing in alaska for a couple weeks and haven’t been able to interact with any of you due to a lack of time and internet connection. i really appreciate your continued support and should be able to start catching up early next week! |:•:|

Five young burrowing owls keep a watchful eye on me as i take their picture. burrowing owls are small diurnal owls found throughout much of the western u.s., florida, and south into south america. they often have large broods, this is an image of five of the seven total young in this burrow. >•••••••<

A male resplendent quetzal perches in the highlands of costa rica. resplendent quetzals can often be found around fruiting wild avocado trees. they feed on the small fruit swallowing it whole. after about 20 minutes their digestive acids have dissolved the skin and fruit and they regurgitate the seed. •||•

A green heron perches on an old snag above its fishing pond. sky backgrounds aren’t my favorite, however, i really like this little heron’s pose and its wind blown feathers. i thought it made for a fun shot. >=•=<

A roseate spoonbill flies through the wetlands of texas near high island. roseate spoonbills are large wading birds in the ibis family. in the u.s. they are most commonly seen along the gulf coast and in florida. the richness of their color is dependent on their diet. •>|=|<•
