Many Bird Sightings This Week

It has been an unusually good week for bird sightings.  I found this common raven on Monument Road...


Two Canada geese were sitting on eggs, and trying to keep a low profile...




A female cardinal posed nicely in early morning light...

 
 
I find warblers difficult to photograph because they so seldom remain still for very long.  This yellow rumped warbler was no exception...
 



A brown thrasher was drying off in the morning sun...


This male red-winged blackbird is hoping to attract a mate...



A juvenile red-tailed hawk soars from it's perch...


This red-shouldered hawk watches a field for prey...


Last but not least, a blue-gray gnatcatcher provided me with photo opportunities early one morning...



 
 


I hope the birds in your area are being cooperative, too.
