Black-bellied Whistling-Duck These 3 ducks showed up on my pond in S.E Wisconsin. They stayed and rested about 2 days and left. They are a long way from home. They are a Central American duck and are sometimes found in Texas.
The white deer near Boulder Junction bring the Northwoods of Wisconsin alive with magic. We have been so fortunate this year to witness their magic so many times this year...especially when guests have been visiting!
This owl appeared in our yard on March 1 in Wausaukee, WI in the Town of Wagner. We first saw it in the morning and then at the end of the day I saw it land on our wooden swing set and was fortunate to get this picture. We couldn't decide if it was a Spotted Owl or a Barred Owl but after much deliberation we decided it was a Barred Owl due to our location. They are very similar owls.
Spotted a single albino deer just East of Fort Atkinson, WI on 9/15/2017 and stopped in road to take some pictures. The smaller deer kept looking back across the field waiting for it's mother. Soon the mother entered the field and slowly walked to meet her yearling. I sat in my car and enjoyed the show for about 10 minutes and took over 20 pictures of the two. Very cool.
This hen turkey and her little babies were roosted in a pine tree just outside my bedroom window. I think there were about 8 little ones but they were huddled quite close together. June 2016, North of Augusta, WI.
Turkey Hen with 3 legs and 2 sets of tail feathers. I was hoping to get more photos but the other hens saw me in the window and flew off. This photo was taken in my back yard in Germantown Wisconsin. This is an original photo not photo shopped in any way. photo by Bob Eastman
This buck came in to my fine turkey calling and decoy. He stayed around for about 20 minutes and he was so close I could touch him. I took this photo with my flip phone around Cross Plains Wisconsin on Oct 27.
This photo was taken on the grounds where i work. Since last year this Canada goose has become a sort of companion to this farm goose. This spring i noticed that they had mated and produced a mixed offspring. I thought it was really cool to see this.
