Sora, Night Heron, Peregrine (20140801) A prescouting Friday night

With the thoughts of doing some Blind time on Saturday, Jamie and I thought a scouting trip was in order. So we boogied out after work in the evening so we could do a little inspection. While we we only out for a bit with very little time we did spot a couple of subjects. This is a juvenile American Avocet, I haven't been able to see many of these birds this year.
A reak surprise for us was this little family of Sora's. Mom with her two small black chicks. These are the youngest Sora chicks I have ever seen.
Another bonus for the day, and a first of the year for the blog, was this long distance Peregrine Falcon. They seem to love the tall electrical towers to hunt from.
We split up and did a little surveying. I grabbed this image of a Lesser Yellowlegs.
Just as we were leaving we caught this Blackcrowned Night Heron doing a flyby.
That wrapped up the scouting trip. It was pretty good considering we really only had an hour. Let's hope that the sun cooperates with us tomorrow!
