Tuesday’s Visitor

          

I suddenly realized all the finches and towhees had left the yard.
Why?

American Kestrel in the ‘hood.

As I snapped photo after photo, a few brave finches perched on the wires above,
and a squirrel ran along the fence behind the kestrel.

They aren’t exactly interacting, but it’s a peaceful coexistence.
We should all do so well.

    • Do you see them where you live? You’re in Maine, right? Or somewhere in the northeast. My Sibley says they’re all over the country but I don’t remember seeing any until I moved to Colorado.

    • He (she?) was doing lots of preening yesterday in the sunshine so the feathers were fluffed out. I just got another shot of the kestrel on the wire and there was no grooming today. Just looking around, wondering where all the little birds had gone.
