Well, I have had a really fun filled day of birds. Its started this morning on the way to work when I was able to get a picture of a Pileated Woodpecker. During lunch I climbed atop a ladder and shot preening Tree Swallows for about and hour. Then, on my way out to my dad's house, I came across a Red-tailed Hawk feeding on a branch.
What could be the icing on an already perfect cake? Seeing this Barred Owl on the way back to my house. He was sitting on a power line at the foot of Berry Hills Drive. And, just like our Red-tailed Hawk earlier in the evening, he had just finished his meal. If you look closely, you can see a little bit of blood still on his beak and talons.
