Summer Doldrums – American Kestrel


Okay, before I go any farther, some of you be wondering about Part II of my Yakkety-Sax Man story.  Never fear, it is being written as we speak.  Look for it Sunday, July 20.  In the meantime, if you haven’t read Part I, click here.

Now here is today’s post:

They are here.   The Summer Doldrums, soon to be followed by the Dog Days of August.  I don’t know why, but I always get a little restless this time of year.  The Spring Migration is over, now it is hurry up and wait for the reverse Fall Migration.

Which brings me to the subject of what to write about during this period.  It’s not that there isn’t birds out there, but they seem to be in the same mood as me.  They just don’t want to get out and be photographed.  I guess I need a new venue and some new birds.  But since I don’t have either today, I guess I will just show some of my favorite image of that lovable, cute, feisty American Kestrel.  Click on any image to see an enlargement.
