I fired up the PhotoRanger on a chilly Thanksgiving morning and took a drive to the west side of the Carson Valley.
I found this guy on Foothill Road just south of Centerville Lane. He was in the middle of the road when I first saw him. I waited for him to get out of the road and I pulled off the road for this shot. The 3 cars behind me didn’t see him at first, but they seemed more understanding when they realized why I slowed suddenly.
This Kestrel was on the trail sign on the Carson River Trail, just off Muller Lane. I grabbed this shot and moved for a different angle, but he wasn’t very patient.
There were 2 Great Horned Owls in this pole barn, but only one was accommodating.
I’m not sure what this Hawk was thinking, but it was probably something about an annoying photographer lurking about.
I’m getting back into wildlife mode, as you can see. More to follow!
