So…while playing around with the ATX in Florida, Non Birding Bill and I had a crazy spectacular thing happen. We were both filming herons. He was using his HD camera, I was using my ATX and Nikon V1. We both [...]
The fun thing about Florida is you can see both American white pelicans and brown pelicans (the above bird). This bird was hanging out near a boat launch in Titusville. Some of the brown pelicans can be quite “tame” around there. And I’ve heard different theories that some brown pelicans learn to beg [...]
Sometimes, I feel like birds are just toying with me. Birds are not the most cooperative photo objects. I am fully aware that when you are tracking down a bird with a spotting scope (or large camera lens) that a bird’s instinct is to wonder if the thing staring at it is trying to eat [...]

It is amazeballs that what people have pledged so far! Holy crap! I had no idea what to expect donation wise for my Big Half Year, but I thought $1000 should be doable over 6 months, but I wasn’t sure. Well, here it’s the end of January and [...]

I got to debut one of my favorite new birding shirts while at the Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival. Can I say how much I love the shirts at Magnificent Frigatebird? I blogged about some of these shirts around the holidays. I love the sense of humor that the company has and I love [...]
While doing some gull watching at Daytona beach during the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, some of the more experienced gull watchers were super excited about a lesser black-backed gull. It’s not so much that it was there, it’s not out of the realm of possibility for a lesser black-backed gull to show up, [...]
