Bald Eagle Perched In Tree

This Bald Eagle perched in tree reminds me of a hood ornament they used to have on cars years ago. I’m sure most people do not know what I’m talking about. If you search for “hood ornament”, maybe you will see what I see.

American Kestrel With Wings Spread

I photographed this American Kestrel With Wings Spread on December 31, 2022. I had arrived at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma just before sunrise. When I had enough light to photograph I began driving the auto tour road. I spotted this male American Kestrel on the right side of the road and as I drove past it; I saw it did not fly away. I turned my pickup around at the next intersection and drove back to the bird. I now had this bird on my side of the vehicle and I began photographing it. I could get this shot because it began grooming.
