January Birdlife


I took a stroll by the reservoir this afternoon.  Birds were the only animal life present.

The first bird I saw was a hawk.  (Or perhaps it was a falcon -- I don't know the difference.)  By the time I got my camera out, the hawk was soaring away.  Its tail feathers were reddish.


Here is an internet photo of a redtailed hawk.


The next bird species I saw was the goose.  Here are ice geese.


Ice geese are related to their sporty cousins, the football geese.
