Sunday Stills -Birds

This week we are showcasing birds for our Sunday Stills and since I don't really like birds except the big ones that don't make much noise like hawks and eagles, I tried to get those.  I actually seen a Golden Eagle this week, but didn't realize till I was driving past it and when I looked back it had flown off, too bad cause I have never gotten a picture of one of them.  But I did get this bird.  Not sure what it is cause every time I tried to get closer it would take off for places I couldn't get too.

Then I got my old reliable hawk that nest every year in the tree at our corner.  I was hoping to get both them in there, but since there are no eggs yet they both are flying around most of the time, but I did get the one in the tree.

And that's all I got this week cause I didn't want to get any silly songbirds and its been so windy its been hard to get far away pics that are clear.  But there are more over at the Sunday Stills website.

Wow, look at that nest! I love birds, especially the regal ones. At least you tried the challenge (and did a nice job) I skipped it, don't have the reach with my camera.

I'm not much of a bird person either and for the same reason. I do appreciate the beautiful flight of the soaring birds and the amazing contruction of their nests. This one is awesome. Can you imagine raising a family in that? LOL
