fatchance:

Kestrel news: I returned from my Great Lakes trip just in time to see the baby kestrel fledge. I spotted Junior hiding in the Mexican bird of paradise bush in the back yard while his parents kept watch overhead. 

Hopping and half-flying is demanding work for a young raptor. I caught him dozing after all his exertions in the bottom photo. 

You can see more of my kestrel photos here

Etymology note: Scientifically speaking, American kestrels are named Falco sparverius. Falco because they are superlative raptors, and sparverius because of their dietary affinity for small birds, like sparrows, though I think the bird carcass in the top photo is more likely the remains of a dove.

I loved working on this Wilson’s warbler for a recent commission! Wilson’s warblers are so delightful to encounter, especially the males with their little black hats. They’re often found near streams, hopping through dense thickets. I placed this one sneaking out onto a willow branch. 🌿

A western snowy plover nest. (via Pacific Southwest Region USFWS)

Western snowy plovers are among the smallest shorebirds in California and make their nests in the sand above the high tide line in small indentations called “scrapes.” Their perfectly camouflaged eggs blend into the sand, making them even more difficult to spot.

The woodlands of Hickory Hills Park were active with warblers this morning. One of the numerous American Redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla) made a brief pause during a lull in the action before resuming the insect harvest.
