Raptor Jamboree (Once Again)

IMG_3453-2
Not to sound like a broken record, but Disposal Road is a daily raptor jamboree — just have to be there at the right time.

IMG_3344-1 We were there yesterday at the right time — on our lunch hour, around 12:45.

First came the kiting the Red-tail, halfway between the Carillon and DeKorte.(Photo below, and yes, it needs to get that secondary feather fixed.)

Then came the Gray Ghost,on the landfill across from the Carillon, and too elusive to photograph.

Then came the light-morph Rough-leg (above and left), who was not the least bit camera-shy — too busy hunting. It worked the side of the landfill from the Carillon two-thirds of the way to DeKorte.

These birds are offering great, prolonged looks. Check out the Rough-legs while they're still in town.
