Camera Critters #251

A week or so ago, I walked along a portion of the Dry Canyon Trail in Redmond, Oregon, which I don’t often travel.  It was the second time in 10 days I was in that area.

The first time I came across a nicely posing bird (which you will see next week here if I don’t find something else to show) I have few photos of, but the second time I traveled the trail, I came across a bird I have few photos of and no photo I consider good…that includes this one.

The bird is a Prairie Falcon, something I have never seen in town.

This photo is not that bad and would have been a good one had the light been directly on the bird.  However, fence lines and distance prevented me from getting a better image.  And moments after this image was taken, the bird flew and disappeared to the north.

It's awesome to get photos of something you rarely see, let alone don't have many photos of!!!
