Squabs Leaving the Nest   Leave a comment

Here are later pictures of the two squabs that were raised this Spring in our backyard, on top of our outdoor speaker. Based on the hair on their heads, I called them Scruffy and Baldy.

This is Scruffy after having left the nest, finding its bearings in our backyard:

Baldy had already claimed the top of the fence as his perch:

Hawk under the moon   Leave a comment

Saw this hawk looking for prey at sunrise behind our house. Here are two different takes on that scene, both shot with my iPhone, but one with the Hipstamatic app.

Hawk hunting at dawn   3 comments

Captured this Red-tailed Hawk as he was surveying the field behind our house for his breakfast during sunrise. The other images were shot after I followed him to a tree that allowed me to get closer.

And this is the one when he finally had enough:
