Ridgefield on Sunday

Red-tailed Hawk

Bald Eagles

Sandhill Cranes under the trees.

Northern Harrier

And a highlight for me---finally I get to see one of the coyotes! It was a long ways away, but I got to see it! It disturbed the Great Egret.

As we approached the Egret, it caught a rodent...

flipped it around a bit...

and gulped it down.


A couple of herons were out hunting in the same area, but they weren't as lucky.

Great Blue Heron and Great Egret

  1. Whoa those egret shots are awesome. I love how dainty they seem only to gulp down a whole rodent. And I'm also glad you got to see a coyote finally!
