Yesterday's Lunch Update

I did some more work on my photos from yesterday, and am going to rule the hawk a Red-Tail. Unless someone can tell me differently. I can't see legs from where the bird is perched, so Ferruginous hawk can't be confirmed, and I don't see anything in the guide about an intermediate Ferruginous. The white undertail still makes me wonder, but hopefully I will catch him on another day in better light and get a conclusive Red-Tail.

The summary of the work was benneficial, I added two species to my year total, the Blue Jay pictured above along with two of his pals, and the Great Blue Heron whose picture is in the previous post.

2009 Count: 54

Lifetime: 85
