This cardinal thought he was hiding in the branches of this prickly tree, but I got him anyway.
After running errands the next day, I took the long way home and was rewarded with this red-shouldered hawk. He posed for a long time.
But the cherry on top of the cake was this Eagle. It isn't a great picture, but it is a picture. I first saw the female or juvenile in a tree beside the road, but it flew and landed in this tree farther from the road. It was then I saw the eagle. I slammed on the brakes and grabbed my camera. (I may need new tires soon) I was as excited as if I had won the lottery, well, maybe not that excited, but pretty darn excited. Bucket List: Capture an Eagle on camera. Check!
Does anyone know if the other bird is a female or a juvenile?
