Birding IS Fun

My monthly post is up over on today, I hope you will go on over and read about Red Knots – A species on the edge. I shared a post on Red Knots two days ago here on my own blog and I wanted to share the information with the great group of viewers on BirdingIsFun too.

In case you have never visited BiF I think you will enjoy the terrific authors there, the super information and images provided by the authors and how the BiF community welcomes all birders, people who want to learn more about bird and bird photographers. They welcomed me and I am just a lowly bird photographer!

There was another post yesterday on BiF that I’d like to bring to your attention about the American Kestrel Partnership, a project that is near and dear to my heart. My friend Matt Giovanni shares information about the American Kestrel Partnership, a project of the Peregrine Fund.  Matt is in North Dakota right now with a pickup bed full of wood destined to become kestrel boxes to be put up in partnership with USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center and Dakota Audubon. I hope he stays warm in North Dakota! Here is the post on BiF.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.


  1. cute Image. lots of character.

  2. You made my day with this is priceless..

  3. Is it the gleam of the eye that makes this female kestrel photo so expressive? It is captivating, Mia!
    Here in the east we hardly ever see kestrels anymore in suburbia and exurbia where in the 80’s and 90’s we would almost always spot a few on the drive to “grandma’s house” 2 counties out from Philly. So sad!!!!

    • Fern, the decline of American Kestrels in some parts of the country is frightening, I remember when they seemed to be everywhere I went in the country. Hopefully the American Kestrel partnership will make a difference.

  4. The female Kestrel is wonderful, well photographed Mia.
