Saturday's Critters


The Red Tail Hawks are returning from their summer habitat.  Some are here year round, but there are many more in the fall and winter.

 And just down the road - another on a power pole - holding one foot up
 This big black horse was enjoying a good roll-around in the grass
 And came up very dusty!!

As for the horse...this is sweet...dusty maybe, but sweet photos.

A dust bath is already good whether it's a horse, dog or bird!
We have lots of red tail hawks in our area...it isn't uncommon to drive 50 miles southwest and see a hundred of them. We also have bald eagles nearby, but I have only seen one in the almost 14 years I have lived here.

What fun to see both the red-tail and the dust-rolling horse! A great post!

That third hawk picture is especially nice. We don't have as many red tails here as we do harriers, and the harriers are year round.

I haven't noticed winter visitors yet . Most of our guests are water birds. I love that giant dust bunny.
