I agree Swainson’s Hawk …. shape, ID marks under the chin and the tail all say Swainson's

I think that might be a Swainson's Hawk. Still an awesome shot and a beautiful raptor.

It's good luck to photograph a Golden Eagle in flight. I stopped en route home from Glenns Ferry, Elmore County, yesterday to look over the Snake River and watched this raptor soar past. No swallows yet under the Old Highway 30 bridge, but it won't be long, I'm sure.

Another "raptorous" day

bike4birds
 

On my weekly ride to the west end of the greenbelt, I was fortunate enough to see a total of 7 raptors: Osprey, RT Hawk, Bald Eagle, GH Owl, N Harrier (skirmishing with a pair of RT Hawks), A Kestrel, and Cooper’s Hawk (who almost hit me as I rode up 23rd St). Then, while eating a late lunch, Susan called me outside because of the Swainson’s Hawk flying above our neighborhood, and later we found a pair of WS Owls on our evening walk. Nine raptors in one day may be a record for me, but, hey, who’s counting?

Final tally for the day was 52 species in a little under 23 miles.

I could see that it landed on a nest. I was so excited! I wasn't sure if we had documentation of nesting in Idaho for this species. I contacted Heidi C. and she told me that I had the 5th documented nest sighting in Idaho. The first one being found July 2020. She pointed me to this website:

The highlights at this expansive wetland for me today included American Avocets and Long-billed Curlew. Starlings have taken over many of the American Kestrel nest boxes placed along the marsh access roads.

Thanks, Richard. Heading up tomorrow to get the trailer. I’ll scope Stonebraker and do my four mile cruise for local Roseberry LBCUs.

A fairly easy bird to find bird, but always a treat to discover. I saw these Yellow-headed Blackbirds hanging out with a few Red-winged Blackbirds in a half-acre stand of cattails in a drainage ditch along Old Highway 30 in Elmore County yesterday.

Spring delights

bike4birds
 

The birds were cooperative on my ride today, but there were a couple of FOY treats that deserve broadcasting. First, I had a flyover of White Pelicans (about 8) while I was biking along the river. They were in “V” formation, headed downriver. Second, when I got home, I noticed a very bright red finch in one of my tray feeders. I immediately grabbed binos and found a gorgeous Cassin’s Finch. While I was watching, I saw at least 1 more adult male. They came and went over the next several hours. So, keep an eye out!

The Cassin’s brought my tally to 44 species in a little over 12 miles. ;-)
