Kestrel keeping 'High' profile

It's hard to know what goes on with these Kestrels .. they fly
back and forth from the tree to the nest and it has
become very very quiet. No babies being seen.
Ethel has been seen in the tippy top of the tree for a couple
days. She can pretty much see the nest from this vantage
point.

The telephone pole also gives her a nice view.

Being this far away and with leaves it is really hard to spot
the birds at all now.
On this day she must have been bored because it looked
like she was doing stretches and 'Kestrel' exercises.

Wings up now!

Higher...

How about a flip over with the tail extended to the sky.

Left and right wing up!

Make like you're gonna fly...

Wow! That feels so much better.

This picture I called 'hiding in plain sight' I saw her fly
in and without the zoom of the camera couldn't see her
at all with my eye.

More to come..... stay tuned to window on nature.
To God be the Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath Done!
(these picts were taken with H5 before I got my H9 back with the
added tele-conversion lens..sorry so far away)
