Went for a hike tonight and saw 4 moose. One had a particularly white back. Very striking looking!

I'd like you to meet Mommy Bird. She and I have been becoming good friends. She spends long hours nesting under my covered patio. Sitting like a queen, warm and dry during passing showers, she's safe from predators who are more scared of us than she is.

At first she was wary, holding perfectly still in her nest. Only coming and going when we weren't looking, she would fly away when we were busy in the back yard.

But now we have trust, and she's decided it's okay to stay in her nest knowing we won't approach her. If I come outside when she's away, she always returns shortly. At first she would chirp at me, telling me she wanted to go back to her nest. But now she sometimes dares to approach the nest even when I'm between them. 
I'm so grateful Mommy Bird picked us and trusts us. She's such a beautiful creature, and I can't wait until her eggs hatch any day now.

Daddy Bird shows up every now and again. He's never squawked at us, so I hope he trusts us too!

I see this family of deer every day while walking on our trail. So beautiful. ❤️#Utah #utahwildlife

Came across this "little" bull moose with @rye20jones up in the quakies. We were lucky enough to get some quick snaps of it in some small clearings then watch it disappear back into the trees. So glad I packed my birding lens!

Found myself an “uncommon” Downy Woodpecker. Geez I Didn’t know it was “uncommon” or I would have stuck around a little longer...#downywoodpecker #backyardutah #getoutside #explore #lookaroundyou #lookup #bird #birds #instabirders #birdsofinstagram #birdnerd #myeverydaywildlife #morethanabirdnerd #utahwildlife #utahbirders #utahisrad
ANTELOPE!! First time I’ve seen one in person. Saw a few of these pronghorns running around the plains. Holly and I love the unique shape of their horns! We had a great time with @ruben.is.ruben!

I saw all kinds of wildlife today including the ultra rare fat cat. I forgot how wonderful Spring is! Time for some Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans and a nap. 😴

I've been doing a little back yard birding lately. It's impressive how many different kinds of birds are actually around if you stop and pay attention. Here is an American Goldfinch

Great Basin rattlesnake photographed with a Canon EOS 6D.
I absolutely love rattlesnakes. That have a bad rap. Just because they are potentially dangerous, does not mean they are bad. They are perfectly beautiful as they are. I have found them to be gentle and timid. Leave them alone and they leave you alone. Always a treat to encounter this breathtaking reptile in Northern Utah.

Just went on a quick stroll with my family and found these two Desert Tortoises. I thought it was combat but my friend @cameron.rognan says one may be a female. Pretty interesting situation in any case. The first photo is “in situ,” and the second is how they were when I checked on them a few minutes later.

From the other morning when I wandered through Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge the other day on my way to work. #bearrivermigratorybirdrefuge #bearriver #utah #utahwildlife #ut #teamcanon #egret
Throw back Thursday
I hope that I get a chance to see this guy again this year.  I never get tired of looking at him, some impressive headgear.

Female American Avocet (Recurvirostra americana — breeding plumage) preparing to take flight. An observation that Avocets dip their head low to the ground and raise their wings in this manner just prior to taking to the air. This behavior appears to be prominent when they have been roosting and are preparing to move to another spot. Perhaps a pre-flght stretch. When spooked or threatened, they appear to abandon this display and just fly away, as do most birds. #boucherphotographie #daveboucher #nikonnofilter #nikonusa #birds #audubon #avocet #nature #birdbehavior  #ornithology #ornithologyphotography #utahwildlife

These two sandhill cranes were wandering in a farmer's field, so I couldn't get too close, but I thought I'd share the picture anyways.

Decided to post a color wheel today instead of a critter, haha. I mean, are there any colors missing? Man these dudes are just beautiful!

A Great Horned Owlet checking me out. The past few weeks were so fun watching this guy and it's sibling develop and grow. From the time they first emerged from underneath their one-eyed momma, to them branching out and leaving the family nest. It boggles my mind when I think about how fast they've grown in such a short time.

The Black-crowned Night-Heron is the most wide spread heron species in the world. What you see here are the mating colors and the long, thin, white feathers called filoplumes. These feathers, most birds have 2 and sometimes 3, can reach almost 10 inches long during the breeding season. They inhabit most of the swampy areas where they hunt and stalk for fish. In the beginning of the 1900's they were very sought after for their plumes that would adorn womens hats and head gear. #blackcrownednightheron #heron #instagood #bird #birding #birdwatching #plumes #hats #headgear #wild #wildlife #nature #naturelovers #utahphotography #utahphotograher #utahwildlife #utah #canon #canonphoto

It was hard to choose between this picture and the bear picture I posted the other day as my mother's day post. We'll, the bears won, but I thought I'd post this one today as the runner up. There's a lot of amazing animal mom's out there, this mother Kit Fox is no exception!

Forster's Tern (Sterna forsteri)
I don't now who was responsible for naming any Tern "common," there are many: Royal Tern, Elegant Tern… Terns are anything but common. Listed as “climate threatened” by Audubon, this aerial acrobat performs amazing and elegant aerial feats. They are fast, they "kite" to watch for prey, they dive into the water and rise successfully with a meal with regularity. They will even contort their bodies in mid-air to keep an eye on their prey below. Small fish are turned in their beak while in flight so that it can be swallowed whole. Occasionally, the fish will be flipped in the air by the bird while in flight in an attempt to properly reorient the fish so it can be swallowed. #boucherphotographie #daveboucher #audubon #audubonsociety #nikonnofilter #nikonphotography #ornithology #ornithologyphotography #forsterterns #birds #utahwildlife

Double–crested Cormorant, Juvenile (Phalacrocorax auristus) fishing.

Who wins the battle? Cormorants swallow their prey whole. To do so, the bird must throw the fish (in this case carp) up in the air and turn so that it can be swallowed. The fish must end up head first in the bird's mouth so that it will slide down its throat. Otherwise the scales will get caught, and in this case, it is worse than a hairball.
