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.
