Even though it was a balmy 90 degrees in Fountain, we went to the Nature Center for a nice walk. I think Brady may have enjoyed the stroll through Big R more than the nature center, Big R has AC!
The thunderbirds are in town for the AFA graduation. I managed to get a few shots.
we dropped by the hummingbird festival today at Starsmore. The birds from the pueblo raptor center were there for a visit.
It’s most likely our last sunny day for a few days so I went to the hawk nest today. The male now has a fairly predictable behavior when I show up. He voices his opinion, goes back and forth across the nest, then circles overhead, sometimes pretty close. He really does need to unwad his panties, I am across a fairly large creek.
Back to mom and dad hawk today. I promise, tomorrow I’ll go see if the hummingbirds are out yet.
I am pretty sure this is the male of this breeding pair.
Herons on my way into work, Hawks at lunch. The nesting pair was very active, on and off the nest several times.
to celebrate the end of tax season, and getting Laurie back, we all played hooky today. After a couple of errands we went to Fox Run park.
There were 4 herons on one end of Quail Lake this morning. I managed to get two of them in a couple shots. I think they may have been the males of the two pairs, at one point they went at each other pretty good.
Fountain Creek for lunch today, saw a pair of Herons fishing. They were as skittish as normal, so no shots of the two of them together.
