Well, the Thanksgiving holiday is over. Now I am contemplating the Christmas season. However, I think that began long before Thanksgiving, considering all of the commercial ads I have seen the past several weeks.
Anyway, we have been out birding on several occasions, only to come home empty handed. Where are all the birds, someone once said. I guess they are around, keeping in hiding until the weather makes up it’s mind as to what it wants to do.
So, I am staying busy going through thousands of old files, and making surprising discoveries. In the past, I come home from a shoot, load the photos, sometimes several hundred. I look at the best, then forget the others until I have time, like now, to go back a take closer looks. Like now. I forgot about red-tails, osprey, falcons, and went through my old files of the Swainson’s Hawk.
They are nearly the size of a Red-tailed Hawk, and just as photogenic as them. I guess the fact that there are more red-tails around San Angelo, is why I tend to see the more. of them. Anyway, here are a couple new/old photos of Swainson’s Hawks that I have never published.
Those two I have never published. However, here is one that I did publish about two years ago, and one of my favorites.
As you can see, the Swainson’s Hawks are pretty exciting to see also.
So, as I said, Thanksgiving is past and the following photo shows that a turkey is thankful that he did not end up on the platter as he is getting the heck outta’ here. 🙂
And with that, I am outta’ here, too. See ya back here in a few days.
