Mother Nature and Human encroachment are behaving.
Last year volunteers counted over 400 nests.
Happy trails.

Black-billed Magpie. Spent some time with this guy. His right wing appears damaged although no problems flying short distances. He was happy bounding through the grass doing his own thing seemingly oblivious to what was going on around him. He tagged along while I chased a flicker which I couldn't get remotely close to.

Loggerhead shrike, aka, the butcher bird. I'm pretty sure I found a nest location today so more visits to follow.

These guys are cool little predators...fun to watch. Nice shot, Bill.

They sure look like ravens, but can't say for sure, Shalu. I've never seen them eating a snake before, but I know that they will eat most any kind of animal they can find. Like people, they are omnivorous.

Ray.Petri wrote in post #18870894 (external link)
Yes Mike, but we cook the meat first. :-)

Ray I can assure you they ain't worth eating. Tasteless!
And, yes, the Tardis has such a photo  :p
Have to go in the landscape post,somewhere else :lol:
