At the end of January I was still checking on the eagle nest in the neighborhood but still had not seen any sign of a baby with the exception of both adults on the nest most of the time. They are late compared to last year and all of the other nests around the area. I saw one of the parents bringing in food so I’m thinking the baby was still too small to see from here.
I had seen one kestrel a few days earlier but on another visit there were two sitting on the bat box. Looks like a couple. Last winter I only saw one and it was a female.
A few days later I caught him in the middle of eating a bug and then she flew in. He finished his bug and then they both took off.
A dove was watching from the tree behind me.

The sun was just starting to go down at the eagle’s nest.
