Bluebirds, Shrikes and Raptors…for Lack of a Better Title

Birders…what a day of birding! And I was only out for a few hours! I finally found and photographed a Ferruginous Hawk! Other guys that were out there, some that appear in this post, include Golden eagles, Ferruginous hawk Red-tail, White-tailed hawk, Northern Harrier, Am. Kestrel, Red-shouldered hawk (heard the call), and many Western Bluebirds and a Loggerhead Shrike. Aside from the birdies that were out there, it was simply a beautiful day and a wonderful relief from the brisk weather we’ve been having (and when I say brisk, I of course mean the Californian version 🙂 ). Happy birding! And herping! And everything-elsing!

Little male bluebird - so handsome!
