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 titled: "Metallicus" - a glossy ibis in all its glossy glory..!
The previous selection featured 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...
Roseate Spoonbills have been updated with new images...
Always fascinating are the images of Black Skimmers, truly distinctive
coastal water birds, awesome flyers, see for yourself...
Rather noteworthy images on BirdClix certainly are those about the smallest
of falcons, the American Kestrel. With the probably never before recorded exploit
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 10 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 lighthouse 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 year after year
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, many 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.
