Yesterday was a rainy and cool day; over an inch of rain and 66F almost all day. That was so nice for a change !! It cleared last evening about 5 PM, and I spotted a Red-tail Hawk in one of the trees in the yard; got close enough to get a few photos too. No red tail visible. This hawk is as “high-color” as any I have ever seen; maybe a juvenile ? I don’t this a Harlan Red-tail.  I used my Canon 1DS Mark III with a Canon EF 400L DO IS f/4.0 lens:

If you don’t have to get up and go. We got 0.20 since midnight and supposedly more on the way too. Barely hear a bird in the early morning anymore. Their nesting season is drawing to a close for 2013.

Yesterday, I drove to Dixon Ford on the Buffalo River; it is 22 miles above Boxley and just downstream from the two forks that  make it the Buffalo River. It was not dry as I expected, but very low. On the way back I drove up AR 16 to AR 21 to AR 43 and stopped along the Boxley valley\y in several locations. It was a beautiful summer day. I got a photo of a White Winged crow and several Scissor-tailed Flycatchers. The first I have seen a white winged crow since last September. They are  “leucistic”, partially albino. Ive got lots to do today, hope the rain stops for a while.

This appears to be a doe and her fawn from last May; they still have a tight bond to each other; I love that look of nervousness and anticipation (tails up, flags up) they show when the enter the yard in Murray, Arkansas.
