So beautiful!

Is that a Prairie or a Peregrin Falcon? I can't really tell...kinda looks like a mix. Not colorful enough for an American Kestrel. Gorgeous bird though!
It IS an American Kestrel!
Finally saw one of "my" Eagles having a little snack on the edge of the ice this a.m. Was worried he and his lady had moved elsewhere!

Gorgeous!
Beautiful!
So I looked out my window this morning and there were no birds. They ate all the seed I had put out for them. Sure, when the food's gone...

Ingrates!

Hmph...always follow your gut! He's pretty cute...for a highly skilled flying carnivore. Smile
Eastern Blue Birds...I've never seen one around here. Any idea what they like to eat? Do they even hit the Long Island area?

Yes. Also called "hovering hawks" for their ability to hover above whatever they're looking at. We have a pair that likes to sit on our very tall elk fence around the orchard. The male is much more colorful than the female.
We see hawks an osprey here from time to time but only at high altitudes...never up close. In the newspaper last spring there was a photo that someone snapped of a hawk grabbing a squirrel. It was cool but I felt bad for the little guy.
