No better way to spend an afternoon than meandering through Point Reyes National Seashore. I felt a sense of urgency on this day as the light was already golden when I left the house. This Red-shouldered Hawk still managed to stop me in my tracks well before I’d even arrived at Point Reyes.
A stooping male Kestrel sent these Starlings skyward before it settled onto that pole on the right. They swirled around him a few times before returning to their comunal roost. A nice way to start the evening.
This was the face that greeted me when I looked out the living room window yesterday morning. It was one of three fawns wandering around the yard.
Goldfinches have started visiting regularly and are delightful to watch.
Purple Finches were the first birds to arrive.
Pygmy Nuthatches always take their food to go.
Starlings are tireless when it comes to feeding their chicks.
This Bewick’s Wren played cat and mouse with me near my front doorstep.
Doves seem to love the heat rising off the deck and are often found sunning themselves.
