Raptor Wednesday

Buteo jamaicensisButeo jamaicensisJourney around an adult Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis). The bird flew low over a veritable herd of Golden-crowned Kinglets, more than I’ve ever seen before, scattering them hither and yon, before perching not so high off the ground. The brick-red tail of the year-old-plus bird shows very nicely in the sun here.

Take heart: Bush II’s wholesale assault on the Constitution only went so far. There are lessons there for the resistance to the ever-growing evidence, I mean if you didn’t pay attention during the election, of Trump’s autocratic methods.

Also: an interesting analysis of racist provocation and its political uses.
