First Week of Spring

The Cooper's Hawk are still hunting the block. I think I know where their nest is. I'll stop taking photos of them until the chicks grow large enough fly, should be a couple months.

The hawks are a good watch but I've got enough photos of them as it is.  No, I will not tie little animals to a stake in the ground, for hawk attack photos and you shouldn't either, keep it wild.

Lone Canada Goose flying over Caddie marsh, lots of northern birds in the marsh, resting before the flight to Canada.

The only area of the marsh holding water, migrating ducks are using the flooded dead cottonwood grove as a resting area.

Here a hen Mallard Duck is locked in to her landing spot in the wood.
