A Few Birds

Coming back this weekend after work, sick days, and generally too much, and that dull. (Why is it so hard to pay writers dammit???) We will have links, pix, dog news, poetry. I will finally review David Quammen. I will announce others. There will be…. MORE. Tonight though, good photos… as always, right or double click and embiggen.

This extremely early bandtail showed up at Carolyn and John Wilson’s in the Magdalenas two days past. Photo by Carolyn W:

Goshawks. This adept pigeon- killing young male was in Larry Day’s backyard outside of Bozeman MT. I wonder if his meal descended from Spanish pouters I gave Larry 20 years past…

A relative but Melierax not Accipiter— dark chanting goshawk photographed by Texas writer Dennis Sumrak while hunting in Namibia. Dennis is working on a piece on our water crisis and has been seen at the Spur…

Can anyone remember a Roy Campbell poem– “Singing Hawk” perhaps– about this bird? I seem to but can’t find it…
