I am having an awful time posting because my cell signal here at Red Rock Lakes NWR is cruddy this trip so I have to keep this short or not post at all. During previous trips the signal has been fine.
I sat with some juvenile Swainson’s Hawks yesterday morning for quite some time and it eventually paid off when an adult came in to hand off prey but the young hawk missed. The vole fell to the ground and after the adult Swainson’s flew off…
The juvenile Swainson’s dove down to the ground after it. It was pretty nifty to see through my lens. I hope I get to spend more time with these raptors.
I had more that I wanted to write about this but I have grown tired of trying to fight my cruddy cell signal. Maybe it will get better. I hope so. Fighting the signal takes the winds out of my sails.
Life is good.
