July the 6th

Two boxes at East Lake, one big and one small:

A little mourning dove, unharmed


A juvenile pigeon (see the little yellow fuzzies still on the head?) that turned out to be injured behind the head, there was a gash in the skin under the feathers that was too old to stitch, so we medicated it and will keep him til it heals.


Some other shots round the place at Rogers:

There's a surfeit of screech owls just now.



Juvenile hawk shunning me *shuuunnnn* When they hunt on their own in the flight cage, they're ready for release.


Remember this guy from June 15th? He looks a lot better now.


And something I have never seen before, a baby roadrunner!

The Kestrel shunned you? A a guest, I received the "dancing on head" treatment.

I think it was actually looking at what Penny was doing with the mice and meat in the other cage :) There were others eyeballing me, but the pics did not come out as well. I love their coloring. All the little raptor juveniles usually seem very curious as to whether or not one is edible, with bright eyes and sometimes the little cheepy sounds :)
