  1. After a LONG flight, what could be better than a nap with friends?

  2. Looks to me like he was half asleep before landing - the eye lid is halfway down the eyeball.

    Very observant and a great catch Bill!

    That's a classic series. The last two together are comical.
     
  6. Good series, Bill. It's always fun to watch the different species interact.
     
  7. Thanks, Nick. I was actually having trouble at this spot as different things were going on all around me. Killdeer mating, Stilts flying, birds feeding. Oh, yeah, I just HATED it :wink: :wink:

    Thanks, Gale. Here is one more, the next in the series, cracks me up how "tall" the Stilt got. At this point I thought the Cinnamon Teals were going to leave, but nope, they just layed back down and went to sleep instead.

    Thanks, Louie. I probably saw 2 dozen of these amongst the various ponds around the Othello area. And I thought they were "ocean" birds, didn't expect to see them in the middle of the state.

    Thanks. The whole series is a dozen or so images, with the stilt walking back and forth on the rock. I was suprised that the Teals were so "accepting".

    Thanks, Sandi. This is the kind of interaction my wife Nancy likes, nice a friendly. She has problems with the way that Raptor interact with the "little birdies and critters" at times :wink:
     
  8. Very nice series and the comments tell the story

    Good post Bill
