New Updates

Since its been a few weeks since my last update, I thought I'd share some new photos.


Rough-legged Hawk






Merlin

I have a pair of Merlin's setting up nest very close to my backyard, keeping most of the small songbirds very wary from feeding. I'm thinking I won't see much in my yard until this pair have fledged some young and moved on.

Here is the male, taken over a few days, including eating a freshly caught meadow vole.






Horned Lark




Snowshoe Hare



White-tailed Jack Rabbit



Northern Pintail



Song Sparrow



Richardson's Ground Squirrel
