It all began with American Crows having an all out boisterous gathering between cedars and an ash tree in the back.
This pair and others are staking out territory for this year’s nests. There is a flock of about seven birds that have been coming back to this pond area for a number of years.
We caught a glimpse of this lovely pair as they paddled about looking for breakfast.
The Great Egret probably would have been more satisfied during its hunt for a meal without being interrupted by a sudden dumping of hail.
American Crows – Back again
The crows ended the day as they began… in a frenzy.
Could this juvenile Cooper’s Hawk be the reason the crows are so upset?!
I decided to learn more about this hawk, and included it in my Nature Journal.
