… I took this shot of the Coopers Hawk dining on a lizard in a tree near dark tonight from the deck … the normal diet for Coopers Hawks is other birds, but the population of birds around here is down so a change in diet and mostly they have been eating lizards and things this year. He is also mantling over his kill to conceal it from other birds … not much for sharing a hard earned meal.
The Western Grebe below was cruising the waters of Lake Pleasant yesterday along with a number of others looking for small fish to feed on … seldom seen in flight, they dive to avoid danger and also to catch small fish which they usually consume whilst under water. They are not deep divers … usually 20 feet or less.
A wonderful day finishing and in a few hours another one will begin … it is already getting light … into the weekend for me … summer is here … enjoy the day and each moment you are granted and keep on breathing … makes my day every day!
