Bird on a Wire


A departing adult Redtail near Holister, CA.


Focusing on this guy made me miss the high point of an epic Redtail vs. Golden Eagle encounter… but… hey, it’s a Western Bluebird. He was doing an imitation of MC Hammer’s typewriter dance down the wire… worth it.


A lady Kestrel flares off the line.


Occasionally you’ll see a Redtail on a wire but they tend to prefer a sturdier perch where they can hone their skills at impersonating insulators.
