I went to Metzger Farm open space park in Broomfield, Colorado Saturday. The herons have returned again this year to raise their young as have some owls. As I was leaving I spotted a Kestrel right next to the road. I jumped out of the car so fast I almost forgot to put it into park!
Hallelujah! I finally got a decent shot of a Kestrel. I am jumping with joy right now!
The Great Blue Herons have returned to Metzger Farm Open Space to raise their young.
As have Great Horned owls. This nest is in the same tree as the herons and was about 300 feet away. We counted three chicks.
This is a different family farther north. Officials put a temporary fence to keep people from getting too close. We were able to get about 100 feet from her. I could see two chicks.
I got a good photograph of a meadowlark a few years ago. I also want to get a good recording of the meadowlarks song. This is my second attempt at a recording.
