Biking the highway. I guess not the wildest of places, but as things melt faster in the ditches, lots is happening there.
Before we get to the highway. We see a gopher. Well i say we, but it is Virginia, as always a bit faster as i am. And Cliff faster again, knows the gophers have been out for a week.
The gopher seems to sit frozen in the middle of this field.
And right away we see why. A bird comes flying in, circles a bit
Maybe see us, and waits high up in a tree.
We wait too, but nobody moves, so we let them be and we will never know,
we don't see any sign of a struggle after we come back.
But as we turn in the driveway a bird of prey does take off out of the ditch.
Of course my question to you is again, who is this raptor? Busily getting my camera, i didn't watch it fly.
Along the highway we meet several Northern Harriers again.
And two beautiful birds, one of them, GUESS WHO?
And she looks as beautiful as the songs she writes! (click her name and you get to her blog)
Wonderful Rachel to meet you:)
