Another Pretty Day

I rode to the Agriculture Center again, about noon. It was warmer and just a little cloudier than yesterday. This wasn't the best time of day to be there, everything seems to take a midday nap, but there were several Palm Warblers moving around. Instead of choosing a nice photogenic perch they insisted on walking around on the road. Oh Well! They even build their nests on the ground, they sure were avoiding trees today!
One of the Kestrels was next to the road when I was coming out, couldn't see the wing color. I got one pic, was going to slip in closer, or try, and some lowlife idiot came roaring by, boombox blasting, and started blowing their horn. Idiot might not be strong enough language! I actually said a lot more, hope they heard me! We are up to our armpits in barbarians, and more being born every minute.

While waiting for me at an appt. today my other half handed me a sweat shirt and said,"Hold on firmly, there's a bird in there; I think it's injured."

It's an American Kestrel, I believe and trying to recuperate in the quiet of a box.

It seems it knocked itself out in a mirrored window.
I'll keep you posted on the progress.
I hate it when this happens and he brings them to me.
Sometimes it turns out well.

Well, as I suspected, it did not turn out well. The damage was too severe and it broke my heart.

I learned a long time ago that nature needs to take it's course.

Too many (not good) experiences to tell me differently.
