The Not So Shy Kestrel
I walked and walked and walked yesterday looking for something wonderful. Finally at dusk about the time I was about to give up, I looked just in front of me in the field in Valley Forge and there was my little buddy, the American Kestrel. He totally ignored me (although he didn't) as I took picture after picture. Here's my favorite.

If you look very closely you can see a second hawk lying on its back with one claw up defending itself from the attacking hawk. Think if I had just been a foot taller. Click on picture for better view.

Coyote and Harrier in Valley Forge Yesterday
The light was harsh and I was in the wrong position when I came across the coyote with a vole in its mouth and a harrier overhead. Even so, a thrill to see on the first day of Spring. Click photo for better view.

Bluebirds and the Cannon
I had walked through one major field this morning but nothing, through the big woods where I saw some deer, but nothing to write home about, through another woods with nothing. Finally I crossed the big parking lot and headed for the cannons off of Gulph Road. And there was a blue bird. And he landed on a cannon wheel. The light was in the wrong place, but shoot away I did. And then there was Mrs. Bluebird!! The two of them together. They were going in and out of the cannon, sort of cleaning out the debris. Ahhhh, Valley Forge, makes my heart sing.

Harrier Too Close for the Viewfinder
This was one of two female Harrier Hawks in Valley Forge this morning. One was flying around a lot looking for breakfast and this one was sitting in the field calling to the other one. I got closer and closer to this one until she swooped up and came directly over my head and fluttered above me. A little intimidating looking through that 600mm lens with a 1.4 extension. Anyway, lots of fun today.
