Trapping season has arrived!

Had a great day trapping today, only caught the one RT pictured below but saw TONS of birds! Not just kestrels and RT's either, golden eagles, feruginous (sp?) hawks, swainson's hawks, turkey vultures, a coopers hawk and praire falcons were in the mix as well. At one point we were stopped on a dirt road with a praire falcon two telephone poles behind us, a ferug 5 poles in front of us, a RT 100 yards down the fence line to the west, and a golden eagle soaring on the horizon. Awesome stuff. Can't wait to get out and do it again!!

Atarashii pasacon wo katta kara ima no tokoro nihongo wa kakenai. Moshi wakenai kedo shibaraku no aida romanji ni narimasu. Kyou trapping no jiki ga hajimarimashita. Ichinichi jyu ganbarimashita. Yama hodo no taka ya hayabusa ya washi wo mimashita ga kekkyoku shita no ichinenme no red-tail dake wo te ni iremashita. Kotoshi wa amechou ni suru node kono red-tail wo shashin wo totte kara sugu ni hanashimashita. Sugoku tanoshikatta! Kongetsu no manaka gurai made asobi no trapping wo shite, soshite amecho wo jibun no mono ni shite kunren wo hajimarimasu. Tsukamaeru taka no shahsin wo nosemasu ne. Tanoshimi!

I won't keep a bird until around the middle of the month (unless I get exactly what I want...) so until then check back often for pics of all the birds I catch!

Hey Pete! Didn't know you visited here.

Yup, I've seen that video. Check out the eagles hunting deer. Those are pretty cool too.
