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.
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.
