urbanhawks. Chronicles the narnian type struggle of the wild animals (non biped type) to reclaim New York City.
Where I live the coyotes are like pigeons but I guess it's all about context. I sent the link to Stan and he sent me another similar link from his friend Cal, birds of central park.
I am a regular visitor to naturalist Monika Wieland's excellent Orca Watcher blog.
I will have to take pictures of the empty hawk's nest in the sycamore tree. All the leaves are gone and it looks lonely and forlorn. I wonder if any one of the three offspring will come back and use the nest this year. Watching the hawks grow up was the highlight of 2009, not that there were so many. I have seen the juveniles in the valley once or twice in the last couple of months.
It has been steady rain. We invited a few friends over to open a special bottle of wine at the gallery last night but most couldn't make it. Had a fairly ribald and profane time with those that did. Bit rocky today.
Tracy just sent me another great avian link, Palemale.
This guy of course, is one of mine. Don't believe he was a redtail, he was smaller and showed up about a month after the other four left the valley. Maybe a red shouldered, will have to check.
Saw an osprey several months ago. Outrageous white head with a black bandit's mask strapped across his eyes. Incredibly beautiful bird.
