Raptor Wednesday

The bagpiper had just finished practicing, so the peace and quiet and nature sounds I came for were again all around me. The call of an American Kestrel had me scanning the skies. This bird flew up to the top of this conifer and, as I got some lens on the situation, I saw that he had lunch. The yellow rump and tail pattern point to Yellow-rumped Warbler.
High atop another perch elsewhere in Green-Wood, a Merlin scans the scene.
Sometimes the light and the location are rather better. Female American Kestrel.
A few minutes later, she was perched on this sign when one of the several Blue Jays policing her showed up close and personal.
