Portrait of Wolf Peter Weber

The BirdClix web site was launched by Wolf P. Weber in 2000 as a means
for Birders and the
Birding Community to participate in his photographic adventures and observations of birds & waterfowl. Essentially an effort
to be in touch with and record what's left (or not) of the Natural World.
Just see the Osprey nest on a red tile roof (..?) in Florida.

No advertising nor subscription fees and no obligation to buy anything.
Any purchase of gallery prints is appreciated and considered helpful.
The currently offered Favorite Selection is a fine art print from a photograph of hundreds of airborne Black Skimmers -
"Exuberants"... Exuberant flyers they are indeed.

Originally Wolf became interested in birds as a sailor during his youth... "Whenever we'd see birds we knew that shore couldn't be too far.
Our aches, our minds would go with them. Later I had the
extraordinary chance to be able to enjoy the sounds of Nightingales
while living in the South of France. How many nights we fell silent
by an open window and listened. We'd just sit back and be absorbed.
I hardly ever got to see one of these enchanting birds and, strangely,
it never occurred to me to try and get a picture."

Current updates are more of the single subject mode under Scoops
Like observations of Limpkins and Little Blue Herons,
with many pages
in the works. Large files on these wading birds
are making fitting selections a pain for the brain...


An updated 5 page story about Roseate Spoonbills
with quite a few new images has been added...

Always fascinating are the images of Black Skimmers, truly distinctive
coastal
water birds, awesome flyers, see for yourself...

Highly noteworthy images on BirdClix certainly are those about the
smallest of falcons, the American Kestrel. With the probably never
before recorded exploit of a male provider bringing a small
rabbit kill to the high-up nest...

Last, not least, American Bald Eagles are the most covered birds
by now. Many photographic updates...

Harlequin Ducks and various other water fowl, around Rhode Island's
Sachuest Point might be of interest as well. Not to forget
23 photographs of Green Herons, rather solitary wading birds,
There are some 8 pages on Ospreys, for those who don't have these (mainly) coastal birds in their vicinity... With an instructive picture
sequence about a pair of Ospreys with a nest on top of the roof of
a small tower in SW Florida.

Various Birds and Waterfowl presents a variety of photographic exploits
with frequent additions.

Funnies is a new rubric with such. Check'em out...

Please notice: an extensive story about the relevance and importance
of Mangrove ecosystems to the planet, with many pictures of all kinds
of waterfowl, is online at WolfP.com Relevance especially now that we keep
learning of the fact that carbon emissions aren't coming down. To the contrary.
Therefore: Mangroves for the Planet...

New: Photo scoops of molting Little Blue Herons and of Kites.

Images of Limpkins, pages of them, will be coming soon, though a lot later than
promised
. My work on and around Monarch Butterflies had suddenly become more
urgent.
Not only do I observe and photograph them, circumstances have led me
to become an active butterfly cultivator. Nature needs pollinators, and with the
number of honey bees in many places decimated by the spray campaign against
Zika virus carrying mosquitoes, butterflies have a larger than ever role to play.
We need more of them. Footnote: By early 2017, bees here seem on the path to
recovery... Limpkins should be up by the end of August.
