Rusty is hiding in the barn.DSC_6066 These ewes were waiting for me to change the fence and let them into that tall grass but I was distracted by other things. Do you see the bird on the fence behind them? Don’t look too hard for it. See it below.Western KingbirdI looked it up. Western Kingbird. I know my birder friends will tell me if I’m wrong.Western Kingbird (1)I think there is pair nesting nearby. I was mowing the pasture later in the day and they followed the tractor catching bugs. They would zoom off toward the trees and then come back for more. DSC_6083 Balloon getting lower. In the meantime…Hawk with prey…I saw this hawk being harassed by another bird.Hawk with prey (1)I didn’t know until I zoomed in on the photo on my computer that the hawk had something in it’s talons. Hawk with prey (2)
