Happy New Year!

A Hummingbird that isn’t a Hummingbird!

Hummingbird Moths look and act remarkably like real birds. They are beautiful! This is the first one I’ve ever see-it was in my garden, feeding on a Bee Balm flower. Official name is “Hummingbird Clearwing”  (Hemaris thysbe).

Spring Bird Sightings

After a long winter, extending into April, Finally, Spring!

Show at Seven Stars Arts Center in Sharon Vermont

My new show is hung at Seven Stars Arts center in Sharon Vermont. It will be up through August.

Look at the schedule of events and activities to find out when they are open. There are no regular hours for the show, but there is a lot going on!

Here are a few of the works to be seen:


Yellow-rumped Warbler Visits suet feeder

I love to make stories with my photos, even if they are not all “perfect” pictures, but sometimes documentation is worth more than perfection.  A few days ago I was surprised to see a bright Yellow-rumped Warbled on my suet feeder. It had been cold and rainy all day.  The feeder was almost empty, but he was very determined to glean a crumb.  I took these shots through a window. After he left I put more suet in the feeder and he came back for a better meal.

Scarlet Tanager

Brilliant Scarlet Tanager Arrives May 1, 2017

Found along a busy roadside-saw this bright speck and came to a screeching halt (safely). He flitted all around, but posed for me briefly. This is an early date for a Scarlet to arrive here in Vermont.


A pair of Bald Eagles have a nest in the area, and these photos were taken when 2 nestlings seemed newly hatched.



Surprise Spring Snowstorm In Vermont

The birds at home were pretty hungry and came to our feeders. April Fools day dumped a foot of snow on us!

2017 Vermont Birds Calendar!

Once again I have created a calendar with new photos of Vermont birds. Although that’s the title, they are really appropriate for  most species found in New England. I am a long-time local photographer. Most of my work is bird photography, so I’ve put together a 2017 calendar of Vermont birds. It is 11″ x 8 1/2″, wire bound printed on heavy stock, very nice color.

Go to my “shopping cart”  page to purchase with Paypal. Here are a few images from the calendar.







Mother Fox and her Two Kits

I spied this lovely fox in a field and soon noticed her kits coming out of their den. They stayed out a short while before getting frightened by some loud crows.

Spring Surprises in Vermont

Spring is so exciting here in Vermont. Every day brings a new surprise. For the first time I am seeing a yellow-bellied Sapsucker at my suet. He seems to have to raise his head to swallow the stuff.  (Taken through a dirty window).  There seem to be Bitterns (usually rare and elusive) everywhere. Here is the Sapsucker sharing suet with a Downy Woodpecker. And closer views of the amazing bittern with a frog, and after “lunch”.
