Geese, Kestrel and Eagle, Maybe...

I have not had any unusual or interesting wildlife sightings lately.  So, with that being said, I will share the photographs that I did manage to take over the past few days.  The first ones are of a pair of Canada Geese displaying mating behavior...





In this photo I think the goose is expressing his disdain for my picture taking efforts...


There are frequently deer to photograph.  I am looking forward to photographing the new fawns that will be born in the Spring...


There seems to be an unusual number of raptors in the area recently.  Perhaps migrating earlier than usual due to the warm weather we have been experiencing...


The next photos are of what I believe to be an immature bald eagle.  It is being harrassed by a crow.  The photos were taken at the LilyPons Water Gardens...





This series is of an American Kestrel that I observed along a country road...






And, finally, a photo of the Screech Owl that so often brightens my day with his presence...


Thanks for visiting.
