My favorite pair of Red Tails are back on their nest. Here is a few shots of them, and their neighbor from down the road.
I spotted this Juvenile Red Tailed Hawk today at lunch near Quail Lake.
My favorite pair of Hawks are back on their nest near my office. He did his usual behavior, yell at me a few times and then circle overhead to see what I was up to. I don’t think they have laid eggs yet, both were on the move at the same time.
Took a drive today and ran across a few things. Including a distant sighting of one of the Bald Eagles calling the Fountain Valley School home.
I have been out and about for a few days and had not downloaded my CF card. Here is what I have run across over the last few days.
yes, the hawk wins. Sorry about the last image’s quality. I shot it leaning out the passenger side window, from the drivers side. No easy task with a fully extended 500mm lens. these shots show the progression of the attack. from lamp post, to where he missed it, then hit it before it got to the weeds.
A hawk that was in the neighborhood, the dogs on the trail, a Heron, and a swallowtail in the park.
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.
