birds (101)

Great Blue Heron

Majestic birds, very spooky — at slightest perceived movement, they will take off. I shot this through the living room window yesterday morning, it was at the pond, looking for fish.

Red-Shouldered Hawk in Tree This Morning

It was giving the evil eye to the chickens. (They’re safely enclosed by aviary wire.)

I think this is a young hawk. I climbed up a ladder with my telephoto lens, was maybe 10′ away from him — he wasn’t alarmed. Come to think of it, maybe predators are more in attack than flight mode.

Last night I saw 2 different coyotes on the highway. One is there pretty much all the time; I hope it’s not due to people feeding him.
