    I haven't seen much of any wildlife lately except for this juvenile Red-Tailed Hawk. Today it was sitting in the same 1/4 mile area where I've spotted it in the past. And the lighting was stellar. I was only able to take a few photos before it flew off. Eventually it returned to one of the wires where I've photographed it in the past. But its direction to the sun was entirely different, and the quality of the light just couldn't compare.

    Photographing a Blue Heron has been on my bucket list for a few years. Two days ago that finally happened. When I posted in a local Facebook group and mentioned I'd still like to photograph a fox and a coyote, I was given some leads. They aren't the kind of wildlife you think you'd see in the suburbs. But maybe later this year....

    I removed the branches from the images I posted yesterday. Looks like the hawk caught a mouse.

    I let our dogs out this morning and saw this squirrel sitting on a neighbor's fence post. I shot a few frames in continuous - the squirrel barely opened its eyes. So I will check on it in a little while to see if it is still there.

    All of these were cropped from their originals. The image I submitted in the Birds weekly challenge is a further crop of the 3rd photo.

    It hadn't moved when I took the photo other than to barely crack open its eyes like they are in the pic. Ten minutes later I went out to check on it, but it was gone. So I'm guessing it was just tired.

    I'm sure @Vixen will be happy to hear an update on the squirrel.

    So this morning I saw a few hairs of its tail showing just over the top of the fence. So once again I made the kissy noise. First it gave me the impersonation of Wilson from Home Improvement (anyone remember that show?).

    Then after talking to it, it peeked over a little more. I left some birdseed for it before going back inside. Both of these images are cropped quite a bit.
