Red-Winged Blackbird Song and Display





Stunning male Red-Winged Blackbirds in classic singing and displaying mode for Spring! I could watch these guys all day. I have several videos of RWBB's, but this is my best sound recording so far. No man-made noise and using an external shotgun microphone for DSLR: http://amzn.to/2CtlQDj

Wild Animal Tracks - Alligator Deer Bobcat and Raccoon Tracks





Join me in a place where Deer, Bobcat, Raccoon and Alligators among other creatures all use the same trails. Once in awhile there are cottonmouth snake tracks and wild pigs as well and of course vulture and big bird tracks :-) Of course, the most dangerous track of all is the human footprint!

Hiking With a Black Vulture


Hiking With a Black Vulture




A friendly Black Vulture walks with me on a marsh hike for over half a mile! Breaking trail is Vulture's thing - I had no idea they were such great walkers.

Red Shouldered Hawks Mating and Calling




A pair of Red-Shouldered Hawks mating in a Palmetto Tree and a lot of very loud territorial calling. Filmed in the vast St. John's River Marsh where trees are scarce. I was extremely fortunate to start filming the male who was calling as he approached the tree and mating began immediately. Note the male is considerably smaller than the female.

Great Horned Owl Visits Backyard


Great Horned Owl Visits Backyard



A Great Horned Owl makes a rare visit to the long-leaf pine woods behind the Backyard. After a hard nights work its ready for some shut-eye. Mother Screech Owl is roosting in the nest box and they have to watch out for this big owl at night - they will eat their little cousins! On a few occasions I have heard and seen the Great Horned Owl in the Backyard at night. Breeding season is getting in full swing for all manner of birds now.

Brown Thrasher Singing a Song




Brown Thrashers singing is like songbird jazz - very improvisational. They can out sing their cousins the Mockingbirds and Catbirds. Lately this Brown Thrasher has been singing his song every morning before sunrise usually high in the oaks were he is hard to see due to dense cover and poor light. Look for a special late winter guest appearance due to very warm weather - notice the squirrels reaction to this unwelcome visitor. Sometimes squirrels will attack snakes and run them off, but the Backyard Squirrels here are pretty mellow.

Directional Shotgun Video Microphone for Smartphones





Good affordable directional shotgun video microphone for smartphones. Join me and the Backyard Crew to review and field test a COMICA CVM-VS08 shotgun microphone that easily attaches to smartphones. If your not interested in microphones watch the open and skip to the middle for birdsong recording test etc. with the Mic. For Android phones you should use another video app like "Open Camera" and set software to external microphone. I use this anyway because it is such a good commercial free app - this is discussed in the video.

Eastern Screech Owl Father




Hangout with Mr. Owl for awhile. Screech Owl Dad is a Grey Morph and the female has always been a red morph - they make a handsome couple. The male Screech Owl spends all day hanging out near the nest box. He can be very hard to spot, this footage is from a few years ago I just recovered from a bad hard drive.
