BIRDS, DEER AND BEAVER

This week provided a variety of photo opportunities including this juvenile red-shouldered hawk...





A female yellow-bellied sapsucker...



This male downy woodpecker...



A white-throated sparrow bathing...





Domestic duck at sunrise...



Same duck, different day...



A northern harrier swooping on prey...







A belted kingfisher...



A beaver storing food for the winter...



The Monocacy Battlefield provided some deer...





The next photo is to demonstrate how much a deer can grow in one year.  The buck is probably 18 months old, the fawn was born this year...





A fight is brewing...











Thanks for visiting, be well and come back soon.
