Wonderful Findings

One of life’s little pleasures is sharing with others that may not have the opportunity to see some of Mother Natures handy work up close.

Coopers Hawks are one of those birds that tolerate human presence.

Great Gray on the Wing

Reflecting back to a trip taken this past winter in search of Great Gray Owls. Though it appears to be a warm sunny day it was in fact -25c but no wind…it was warm enough that no gloves would be required.

With an active owl located it turned out to be a great opportunity for flight captures as it hunted the roadside for a meal.

Peregrine Chick…Working His Wings

Return visit to where the chick that was previously having a bath…I’m calling him “Splash” for the lack of a better name.

Now finding him on a higher perch, exercising his wings…after watching him for an extended amount of time he made two flights. He appeared to have this flying/landing thing down pat and doing very well for a new fledge.
