I caught these two together this morning and almost managed a photo of a Green Heron in the same frame, but the heron flew off.

Kestrel photos: Both super shots, but I'm wondering what he was doing on the ground. Grasshopper?

It was amazingly hot that day for our area...almost 110 degrees!!! I was watching the Kestrel hover, but he had to come down and cool off every so often. He was panting like crazy poor guy.

I have mixed feelings about this photo, it was a snap shot of a active Vireo.  I was mildly shocked to see it below eye level for me, I'm usually looking up to see these birds.  But it's definitely the best photo I've managed so far of a Red-eye.

Awesome shot! I would adjust the crop, but other than that, it's a fantastic picture of a Red-eyed Vireo.

WOW. I wonder if Peacocks can live in our climate here in the Pacific Northwest during winter. I would think he would be happier if he got caught so he could be with the Peahen ladies. He's pretty handsome! Maybe someone dumped him there. :-(

Did you report him to a ranger or anything? I would.
