A nice way to end out a bad year...

While out taking care of business today, I decided to stop and bird a nice looking field adjacent to the Mill Creek in West Chester, Ohio (north of Cincy). Glad I did.

Birds seen included:

4 Wilson's Snipe
6 Eastern Meadowlarks
Several White-crowned, Song, American Tree Sparrows
3 Redtail Hawks
3 American Kestrels
Canada Geese, Mallards, American Black Ducks, Belted Kingfisher,

and this Peregrine Falcon diving on some Mourning Doves: (Keep watching, a Peregrine will soon appear!) P.S. - There is no sound!


  1. Have a happy new year

  2. Hi Donald Happy New Year to you and yours, Hope things pick up for you.

  3. Thanks Monty! Happy New Year to you too!

  4. ...that is a good way to round out the year. The video reminds me of the Gilmore Ponds area. I saw Kestrels there Dec 19th during the CBC--would love to have seen the Peregrine! I liked seeing him soar in your video. Happy New Year!

  5. What a fantastic bird, never seen a perigrine and boy how I wish I was there
