Just when you were sure......

Never say NEVER!!

Yesterday afternoon at work... about 2 o'clock I walked outside
to water a few potted plants and low and behold I thought
I heard the Killy killy killy call of a Kestrel.
I looked over into the tree where they USED to always sit
and low and behold there was none other than a Kestrel.

I ran upstairs to my office and grabbed my camera...yes!
I always have it with me. and started shooting through
the rather old blue tinted windows of the Historic Building
where our funeral home is located.

I found when I got home that I could crop much better with
the DSLR than the old Sony H50 and retain some detail.

Soon the Male landed on the top of the building
and the crop did confirm it was the male.

As she waited in the tree he flew away and soon....

He was back carrying a mouse in his talons....
Looks like a courting gesture to me...but
let's wait and see.
Click to see the mouse...

Quality of these pictures suffer when taken through windows
and really far away, but hopefully if they nest I will have
opportunity to get close up and personal.

That is just the BEST news!!! It was so depressing when they showed up in March and then something went amiss! I'm so happy that they have showed up again and look as if they might nest - yippee!!! Good pictures under those circumstances!
