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.
Burrowing Owl at Burrow ~ This owl popped out of the door of his burrow when I drove by, and watched me for a few minutes before heading back inside. His burrow was in the side of an irrigation ditch by an agricultural field near Salton Sea, CA.
