We haven’t been out to properly enjoy the birds very much since the runup to the holidays… now things are finally allowing us to recreate again.

Isn’t this kestrel just adorable?

There were lots of this one odd kind of duck… turns out they were ruddy ducks with their breeding colors turned off.  Here’s the boy,

We also saw something large and owl-like fly by, which I could only get a distant shot of from the back:

Probably a red-shouldered hawk.

The next day, we went on a mini hike up a local hill.  Various hawks soaring around… check out the bulging crop on this one:

And then we got to see a nice sunset.
