Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii), Van Nuys, CA, July 5, 2018 – 3 in a series

A Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) in the garden again, so I’ll be sharing a series of video clips of its behaviors for those interested in raptors. This one appears to be a different hawk from previous videos as it looks much smaller at least to my eyes,

A male Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus) made an appearance over a few days here in the garden. I am guessing he was migrating north for the summer as grosbeaks are not a regular visitor.

A Penguin Encounter at the Santa Barbara Zoo – Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) [Video] (3:23)

May 24th, 2018 Comments off

A penguin encounter with Cito, a Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) at the Santa Barbara Zoo. I was attending the Island Fox Conservation Working Group Conference at the zoo and these keepers gave us a special treat by bringing Cito out for some interaction and an informative talk. It was great to be so “up-close and personal” with such an amazing animal.
