okay, so we went to the hummingbird festival. We saw lots of cool stuff, but sadly I only took pictures of the awesome birds from the Pueblo Raptor Center. In my defense, I got some REALLY good images.
Today was a great day for the Zoo. Alice had a good time, and we all enjoyed the new Encounter Africa enclosure. We stopped by Dickies for dinner and all enjoyed some good BBQ.
Took a drive today and ran across a few things. Including a distant sighting of one of the Bald Eagles calling the Fountain Valley School home.
I have been out and about for a few days and had not downloaded my CF card. Here is what I have run across over the last few days.
Bishop’s castle and the pueblo raptor center were on the agenda for the day. Scott is in town, and he enjoyed the castle. The shot from the raptor center with the kestrel on the enclosure wall, he would do that to you if you got too close to the chicken wire. scared the crap out of us at first, and then turned into a game. the greeter cat, he has the loudest purr ever. he can be heard from 10 yards away.
we dropped by the hummingbird festival today at Starsmore. The birds from the pueblo raptor center were there for a visit.
this little guy hunts the field near my office on a regular basis this time of year. The first couple of shots are well cropped and from my 70-200. I was able to switch lenses before he bolted, so the rest are from my 50-500.
Day off today, in the Span of 2 miles I saw these three birds. First was a red tail, I am pretty sure the second is a Harrier, and the third is my favorite-American Kestrel.
This little guy was hanging out near a local Culver’s. He seems to be a lot less shy then the Red Tailed Hawks.
