Ridgefield Raptors

I haven’t had lunch with my old teaching friends so I drove down to Vancouver on Wednesday. Although the morning was quite foggy, when I finally left lunch about 1:30 it was beautiful, so I headed out to Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge.

One of the photographers I met said things had really been hopping in the morning and the clouds had burned off their before they had in Vancouver. He was right, there wasn’t too much going on and I certainly didn’t get any pictures that I haven’t gotten before.

Still, I’m always pleased when I manage to get a picture of a kestrel:


And I think this might be the best shot I’ve managed to get of an immature Red-Tailed Hawk:
