Birthday Birding Blog

I politely declined when my dad asked if I wanted to go to dinner for my birthday, so we went birding instead.  We didn't see anything in the original location we planned on going, but after we drove around a bit it got more exciting.  What we saw:

Horned Larks, new to my life list.

American Kestrel, not new to the list but first pic I got.

Wild Turkeys. Again, not a new one, but new today.

Haven't had any good pictures of male Ring-necked Pheasants before.

A Northern Harrier. I couldn't get a really clear picture,
but this was one gorgeous bird.




Almost a top view of the Northern Harrier.


Northern Harrier had a very interesting, graceful flight pattern.
