+1.
Never knew Ibis were such predators, and a bit surprised that they would tackle such a venemous prey. Amazing to see.

Very nice picture but banded water snakes are not venomous.

Correct, non venemous but they are somewhat aggressive and can give a nasty bite. The ibis handled him with the ease of a hawk or eagle!

Hi Victor

Beautiful waxwings. What is the difference between the Japanese and the Bohemian waxwings?


Hi!
The main difference in color. The Bohemian tail and wings have a yellow marks, while the Japanese have red. And Japanese is only distributed in North-east Asia.

Wilson's Snipe. No great picture and they are not rare but spotting them can be a problem. Like soras and bitterns, they like to live deep in the reeds.

With us in the midst of winter, there are few birds to be seen. I decided to look at my files from 2015 and process them as I long for warmer days.
