More from Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge

Spotted what I thought was a American Kestrel but when I looked it up in my book I'm thinking it's a Northern Harrier because of the size and large white rump band.  There were two of them hunting, it was really fun watching them and they didn't seem bothered that we were standing there either.  One more checked off my list! Also saw several Red Tailed Hawks and of course, more Bald Eagles.

Juvenile Bald Eagle

Taken at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge this past weekend.  My oh my, so many eagles in one place.  At least 20-30 all in this one spot.  We parked right underneath this one and took lots of photos.  It took a while but it finally spotted us and flew off.  More to come of a few other things we saw this day.....stay tuned.

Up a Tree

Okay, finally got our Christmas tree today, yeah!  We'll see how long it stays standing with this new 'snoopy' cat we have.  She has that name for a reason.  I wouldn't be surprised to find it laying on the floor in the morning or by the time we get home from work tomorrow evening.  :-)
