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.

Just saw this guy when coming back from town, chased him a while, getting about 20 photos. He was sitting along Murray Road just off Highway 327. Red Tails are common here in the Parthenon and Murray Valleys. On the other hand, Red Shoulder Hawks are common to very common along out rivers here in NW Arkansas. I saw three Red Tail Hawks flying in large, very tightening circles, on Thursday morning, from my yard and calling continuously as a part of their breeding ritual. I love to hear the birds of prey and then locate them at amazing heights in the skies.

Taken with a Canon 1DS and a Canon 400 DO ID f/4.0:
