Barred Owl seen from the office 🦉🌳 {📸 M.H.} (touched up in #Snapseed 🍃) #barredowl #nature #ctwildlife #wildlife #owl
Birds of prey are so amazing. I was able to catch this hawk in action earlier today as it captured and ate a squirrel. .

This male downy woodpecker (Picoides pubescens) is a regular wintertime visitor to the back yard. These birds weigh less than an ounce, and are the smallest woodpeckers in North America

A seagull that was happily posing on the docks at the @ctrivermuseum after the wildlife boat cruise with @ctriverquest. Tons of awesome wildlife. Can’t wait to go back and shoot again.

While not facing the camera, it’s exciting to have caught this bobcat’s daytime visit and to see it’s coloring in detail. .

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY to all of our family, friends and fans!! When the Crew goes on an adventure we never know who we’ll meet or what we’ll see! We saw these swans a few weeks ago and knew this was our Valentines picture! But we’ve also include other pictures of the Crew to help wish you the best Valentines Day ever!

Light wet snow was falling this morning as I was grinding coffee beans when looked out the back window to see this beautiful red fox. I grabbed my camera from ten feet away, took one (poor) pic through the window, then ran to the back door. The fox had walked partly across the back yard as I stepped onto the porch, and as s(he) turned away I took the opportunity to walk quickly closer. The light snow covering the yard with dead leaves underneath quieted my footsteps and the falling snow probably helped dampen sound as well. I closed to within about thirty feet (10m) and clicked one shot with his(?) head still turned (see 2nd image). Shortly he looked around my way and I caught the first image shown here. A few seconds later he walked away and I only managed a shot of his rear and long tail as he passed behind a tree and away into the woods. The whole event lasted a little over a minute. In that time I got the impression this was new territory for him and he was a bit disoriented but still pretty calm. A great pleasure to have shared a brief moment with this animal and come away with a couple of pics as well, with snow falling slowly enough to create those white vertical streaks but not hard enough to blur the images too much. Lucky!

Common Redpoll in Darien CT this past Saturday, at Dunlap Lake. Most chaseable bird I ever found...and obviously the cutest.  #ctwildlife #ctbirding #ctbirds #birds #birding #birdpics #birdphotos #connecticutbirds #connecticut #commonredpoll #finch #darien #birdphotography #birders #birdwatching #ctbirdwatching
I was finally able to photograph an owl! Here is a male great horned owl basking in the early morning sun down in Greenwich CT. It was before the sun rose when I saw an owl cruise through some open space in the woods and it took me about 30 mins to find where it went. I got distracted by some raccoons on the way too... I always hear them at night when hiking or visiting various locations but can't ever find them in the day! Its no @jesse.r.gordon photo but its a good start. #GreatHornedOwl #owl #200500mm #NikonNoFilter #wildlife #getoutsideCT #CTwildlife #NaturalConnecticut #NewEngland

Here's another shot of Mr. Coyote 😍Looking right into the camera , I was So fricken excited getting these pictures!

These Beech and Paper Birch Trees were no match for the North American Beavers. This is about a mile from my house. Glad to see wildlife flourishing so close to mankind. #AmericanBeaver #Beaver #WildLifeConservation #MadisonLandTrust #CTWildLife #BeechTree #PaperBirch
We had a visitor in our backyard today. He was trying to get Athena and Melina's attention😱. Coyotes are known for tricking dogs into thinking they want to play then run to their pack🤤Good thing Ryan was paying attention 😍 #coyote #wildlifephotography #naturephotography#coyotes #outdoors #outdoorphotography #goodeye #wildlife #ctwildlife #photography #animalphotography #l4l #likeforlikes #likeforfollow #like4likes #likeforlikeback #like4like #likes #love #row4row #rowforrow #liketrain #petlikespree #petliketrain

Red-breasted merganser courtship display, involving a stretch of the neck and a “bow.” Since no other mergansers were in sight, I guess this drake must have just been practicing.

White-tailed scat, a majestic forest of Spruce and Firs, and an old stone wall from Connecticut’s agricultural era. Random stone walls in the woods are indicators of old farm land from the 1800s. It’s sad, but none of these trees are more than a couple hundred years old. #Conservation #MadisonLandTrust #Nature #CTNature #CTWildlife #EcoTherapy #NewEngland #SpruceForest #FirForest #Conifers

Lucky to be able to enjoy breakfast views like these. I was too slow in capturing the rare sighting of three adult Eagles in the perch together. Hadn’t seen that before! #baldeagle #ctwildlife #southbury #lakezoar

Yellow-rumped Warbler, bringing some weekend cuteness! One of the few Warblers that stay over the winter in Connecticut and I'm happy that they do! Westport CT 02-02-18

The deep and resonant call of the bullfrog closely resembles the mooing of a cow, hence its name. The pool where this photo was taken was loaded with them! Looking forward to the upcoming field season. #ctwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotos #nature #naturephotography #amphibians #ctamphibians #frog #bullfrog #herpetology

Not something you see everyday, a barred owl just chilling on a mailbox. Was with in like 6’ of it didn’t have a care in the world #owl #ctwildlife #barredowl
Decided I'm not too proud to do a "superb owl" post, now that the Patriots wrapped up another one and I'm chillin. This is the same barred owl I posted a couple weeks ago, but I took this shot when he first landed and hadn't settled in and puffed up as in my earlier post. Not sure if he was looking down for potential prey but he hadn't focused his gaze on me at this point. The books say these birds have brown eyes but I always perceive them as pure black. If there's no light reflecting off of them, looking into those eyes is like peering into the void 1/14/19

Warm-ish and sunny today. Found iced-over coyote tracks and his poop behind the barn. ☀️🌬😱🐺🐾❄️

So this lovely creature was digging by my shed today. Unsure if its nesting or killing all my critters... but he or she is magnificent. I got as close as I could without disrupting it. It was my first time ever seeing an owl in person 🖤 #owls #wildlife  #ctwildlife #greathornedowl #iwanttotouchit #winterinct #snow #owlsofinstagram #pleasecomeback
This white-breasted nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) was scolding me from an eastern red cedar for being out near our feeders today. I was about to take some pics of ice patterns in our yard but I decided to make him the subject of a few shots first. The nuthatches often forage on tree trunks, but this one seemed focused on the bird feeders, watching me from one branch or another and vocalizing til I moved on

Lesser scaup (f)...or possibly greater, but I’m leaning toward lesser.
The state of Connecticut runs a tracking program to better understand bobcats and their territories. With over half of our town protected, Lyme is an ideal habitat for cats just like this one. This adult bobcat is beautiful (grumpy but beautiful!), but let’s not forget it is still a wild animal (hear that roar?!🙀) If you see an animal like this in the wild, please keep your distance and enjoy it from afar. You can learn more about this project, and report your sightings, by following the link in our bio! #bobcat #ctwildlife #givethemspace @ctdeeppix #connecticut #wildlife #itsamazingoutthere

State wildlife biologist Jason Hawley has been putting the word out to trappers: if you accidentally catch a bobcat, don’t release it. Instead, call his team.

As bobcats return to New England following decades of conservation and forest regrowth, the Connecticut Bobcat Project wants to learn more about what these mysterious wild cats are up to. “Most people think of bobcats as needing woods and living out in the middle of nowhere, but we’re finding they’re very adaptable animals,” Hawley said.

So far, Connecticut’s project has collared about 85 cats, tracking bobcats through rural forests -- and even one in Bridgeport, Connecticut’s biggest city.

#redfox #CTwildlife #ctaudubon  first time seeing this pair of foxes in back yard.  We’ve seen them in the open front before, but never this close.  Took them a while to get the nerve to jump back out.  Would not want our 3 Cavalier Spaniels to meet these 2!
Snow, ice and below-zero wind chills to start the week. A Red-shouldered Hawk enjoys the morning sun and fluffs it’s feathers to contain the warmth. #coldwinterday #ctbirdsofprey #ctwildlife #hawksofinstagram #birdsofprey #redshoulderedhawk #waterburyct
