Two Raptors at Shaw Nature Reserve

On Saturday, it was D's birthday, and we decided to go to Shaw Nature Reserve (imagine, DnA haven't been there in 10 years of living here!)...and though it was a short visit, it was wonderful. As we drove in, I got this beautiful

Other birds (just imagine the beauty of baby Bluebirds until I post the pic!) , and the beauty of the Shaw Nature Reserve, coming up! I've got Biddly duty again until I leave...so I don't know where I'm going t find the time to do all my packing...
