Meanwhile, Back in the Yard

We had a visitor to our yard yesterday -- a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk, just sitting on the railing, while all the birds (including Hummingbirds) and a squirrel sat around, keeping an eye on it. I'd say it sat there for about fifteen minutes, giving me ample opportunity to shoot photos and a video through our window.

There's a nest somewhere in the canyon; so we assume this is one of this year's fledglings.

And now for the video:

Next stop, Seattle, where I will attempt to book a trip around Protection Island to see the nesting Tufted Puffins, et al. Unfortunately, the weekly pelagic trips aren't exactly weekly. There isn't one during my week and a day there. Maybe next year?

Stay tuned!
