Great-horned Owl ~ This nesting owl was photographed at the Riverside National Cemetery today. The owls start nesting earlier than most birds--January 21, 2014.
This Peregrine Falcon was enjoying a freshly caught lunch, including plucking feathers.
This Peregrine Falcon swooped off the telephone pole, heading for nearby waterfowl. A few minutes later I saw him back on the pole, munching his lunch, feathers flying, and tearing into his prey. Gives a whole new meaning to the term "power lunch". San Jacinto Wildlife Area, California.
