Circle B Bar Reserve - May 22, 2014

So many things to see here today, as usual.  I will start off with the birds.  The best find was toward the end of the day, a hairy woodpecker.  This was a life bird for me and I wasn't even sure when I saw it in the field that it wasn't a downey.  However, the long bill and all white feathers under the tail confirmed it.  I will be looking for this bird again in the future!

 This baby red-shouldered hawk (above)was still near his nesting site and kept vocalizing.  The light-morph short tailed hawk (below) is a pretty rare find.
