I’m with you there, I came up short all last year, but so far this Spring I’ve been able to collect both Golden and Ruby!

Great Sea Hawks.
I love these bierds and never tire of seeing them.
We get one every year up at the cabin but I've never found the nest. I only see
him (or her) fly by when I'm sunning on the dock.

Like Pondrader I take several hundred thousand images a year.
Sometimes I'm way behind posting up.\
So raptor lovers, what is this one? Red-shouldered I think but not sure.
