Heading Out

 Nico is rarin' to go, falcon fly at One Horse Creek across the road. We have one step or stair in our house so this is the "upstair." Love this place, 20 years now (almost.)

Bird Feeder

Why we feed/put up with the non-native Eurasian Collared Doves that have practically taken over this place - to feed the raptors! A terrible photo from this morning, adult male Northern Goshawk and guarantee, he'll be back. Incidentally, the pigeons did not want to leave their loft when I tried to let them out, smarties (and we love our pigeons.)

Mom's Peek

 Mom is viewing our new book on my laptop, and I kept telling her to wait until it's in print to actually read the text. She is still just on page 90, and this is going to take a while. But thumb's up so far!

Falcons Book

 Our book is 99% done, and here is one of the last additions, in the Peregrine Species Account:

A Peregrine survey with Mac Donofrio, the nesting cliffs up a steep drainage. The young are curious about the novelty of humans and are always quickly ushered away to safety by the parents. —KATE DAVIS

Sib and Red-tail

 I was just looking for some weird photo from a million years ago and found this one of Sibley and a Red-tail grappling over the valley. She (Sib) was winning.

Safest Coots in the World

 This raft of American Coots swam over to the goose platform to say hi to Sibley the Peregrine, right when she landed after chasing some ducks. Thumbing their noses!

Sunday Hunt

Our Black and Blue car in the driveway, after a duck hunt with Sibley
and Nico. The ducks were safe, and coots, too.

I Wonder What Kind of Bird THIS Is?

 Yellowlegs! But wonder if it's a Greater or Lesser?
