Birds in my Driveway
The bad thing about having a dog as part of your family, they bring you things. Things like dead baby rabbits. Sometimes, if you are lucky something good will come of it! Kenobe brought us a baby rabbit late one early spring evening. I didn't want to deal with it then so it sat in our driveway the whole night. Meaning to bury the poor thing in the morning, I got ready and luckily peaked out the door.
This lovely bird greeted me! So, I did what any photographer worth their glass would do! Took pictures!
After awhile, I decided to try and get photos from outside. Good thing I had spent so much time shooting out the kitchen window! As soon as I was on the porch, she flew off.
Not too far though!
After some time, I thought I would see if she had come back. Peaking out the window, I saw no sign of the rabbit. I was a bit disappointed she hadn't come back, until I noticed....
I marveled for a time through the window, but wanted to see if this fierce guy would let me get closer
No luck there!
I had an amazing time photographing these lovely birds. Though, I can't seem to figure out what type they are. Any ideas? (I think the top one is a Norther Harrier.)
Clarification; the grey bird is the male and the brownish bird is the female. Stunning creatures both!
Fantastic series of photos! I believe they are a pair of Northern Harriers. The first images are a female and the latter a male.
