Not So Good A Job

I felt like I did not do too good a job yesterday. At one nest I believe the eagles are sitting on eggs now. When they do that about the only time to catch any action is when they swap out turns sitting on the eggs. When moving from one place to another yesterday I had the camera in a too warm car after being out in the cold. When I went to shoot the lens was fogged up enough that I could not focus. I clipped a wing off on what would have been my best shot of  the day on a pigeon as it turned in great light.

One nice surprise yesterday was when a juvenile Peregrine Falcon flew in and perched on the side of one eagles nest. A short time earlier buddy Ron and I said the peregrine’s should be around here with all the pigeons we were seeing. I thought it might be one of the juvenile we watched last spring. But I think this juvenile was banded. The last photo in the post when the falcon flew off. Looks to be a band on the leg…

  1. I have a soft sided five dollar lunch sack that I put my camera in as soon as I get in the car or in the house. It keeps it from warming up too fast so it doesn’t get any condensation on it or in it.
    That falcon better know what it’s doing landing in an eagle’s nest.
    Nice shots!

      When I come in the house I usually put a towel over the camera to let it warm up slow. Never thought about doing that in the car. Should have not let the car get that warm. A learning lesson for extreme cold. It was good to see a falcon have not seen one in about a month. First time I have seen one at that location. Thank You…
