Rusty Blackbirds and Blue Jays at Cranberry Marsh Oct 20, 2013

 Rusty Blackbirds. 
Severe habitat loss, climate change and pollution has caused a massive drop in numbers of Rusty Blackbirds.

 Stunning yellow eyes

 Never boring the beautiful blue jays

Kestrel - male and female Oct 201, 2013

 Margaret, Bev and I were able to watch a pair of kestrels hunting the field. The day was sunny. The kestrels were very active and we had the road to ourselves.

 Female Kestrel snags a vole.  It was not to nice watching the vole try to get away from her talons.
 Love the talons in this shot
