This Weeks Photos...

This week has produced a few bird subjects but little else.  Among the smaller birds seen were a horned lark...


A bluebird...


A goldfinch...


A mockingbird...


The kestrel, or sparrow hawk, is a little larger and has the distinction of being able to hover in place when looking for food...






An even larger raptor is the great horned owl...


A pair of ravens were visiting Lilypons Water Gardens this morning...



As were a small group of swans...


This final photo of eleven swans show only a small part of the flock, that numbered over fifty, that was resting on a farm pond...


Thanks for visiting, stay warm, and come back soon.
