Kestrels Making Kestrels ~ This pair of American Kestrels was captured mating, at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. The image has been cropped considerably, so isn't as high quality as I would have liked. It was still a special moment, one that I've not seen before, which I wanted to document.
Osprey ~ This Osprey was perched prosaically on a street light in La Jolla Cove. He was gazing down over the ocean water, perhaps looking for a yummy fish for breakfast.
Baby Red Tail Out on a Limb ~ I went back to Big Morongo Canyon Preserve a week after my last birding shoot, to follow up on the Red Tailed Hawk nestlings. This "baby" was out of the nest and out on a limb. Moments later he took what I believe was his first flight. I got a few shots of this big event.
