Bald Eagles guard their nests, even in the winter months. Just kidding.

Sib Yesterday

Peregrines guard their nests, even in the winter months.
Just kidding. Sibley perched by a Pileated Woodpecker nest in a little break from her flight at One Horse Creek.

 The eagle standing over her nest. We'll see if they use it this year, instead of those darned Canada geese.

Happy Ending, We Hope

 This young Red-tailed Hawk was struck by a car in September, and was reported, "Still alive, and looking right at me." Miraculous, her head poking out of the grill of a Subaru. I delivered her to our pal Becky Kean from the Raptor Conservation Center in Bozeman, and with a pinned broken wing, great health to begin with and excellent rehab, released today to fly away, hopefully to live a long life.

Sunday Safety

A couple duck chases yesterday, half-hearted and one drake that was smacked barely missed a wing beat flying up the slough. What fun and Sib had a lot of high soars in the sunshine, I imagine just because she could. That's what I would do.

Sib Versus Merlin

A not-too-good photo but a Merlin came in for a little scuffle with the Peregrine, oh well.
