This was on Audobon’s IG feed. Great quote from the ruling judge, “It is not only a sin to kill a mockingbird, it is also a crime.”
I’m still hearing young Swainson’s Hawks calling for mom and dad to bring them food. And they seem to like perching in the top of evergreens. Red-tails, on the other hand, seem to be beyond that stage.

Finally, realized a Lincoln’s Sparrow was doing everything it could to keep up with the appetite of a juv BH Cowbird! So, my first documented Lincoln’s Sparrow nesting on place, plus another species being parasitized by BH Cowbird on place. All in one setting.
Also, watched a Cedar Waxwing family up in the cottonwoods, yest. At least 3 juveniles being fed by a couple of adults.
