Sightings

This morning we had some exciting bird action in our backyard. First, we saw a huge bird across the stream from us.  After digging out the binoculars and the bird guide, we realized we were looking at a pair of Ferruginous Hawks, which are prairie birds and not very common.  Super cool! Unfortunately, they were too far away for our camera.

We did, however, get a picture of another unusual visitor.  This American Kestrel perched on the top of one of our pine trees for a few minutes. I had to push our camera to the max and we still only got a mediocre image, but I figure it’s not bad for photography on the fly.  (No pun intended.)
