I’m back in Florida now, and happy to return to all our birds! There’s nothing quite like an adventure, but it’s always nice to be home. 🐀✨ #bird #owl #barnowl #wildlife #nature

What is your dream falconry bird to fly?
avianrecon avianrecon Said:

I think it would be amazing to hunt with a Golden Eagle, but I’m nowhere near that level. I think a Gos would be fun too.

Good morning! 🐀✨ I’m leaving the Goshutes, but I still have a ton of pictures from the trip, so they might still pop up this week. 😜Thank you so so much to @floatingfeather and the Goshutes Hawkwatch crew for having me out! It was unreal! #bird #falcon #birdfreaks #prairiefalcon #wildlife

What’s up, little hawk? #bird #hawk #hawkwatch #wildlife

This is a new bird for me, and I am totally siked - We banded a Prairie falcon!! 🐀✨ #bird #falcon #hawkwatch #nature #wildlife #birdfreaks

A beautiful Merlin, on her journey south. #bird #falcon #merlin #hawkwatch #migration

Good morning! Have a Red Tail, released just after banding. #bird #hawk #wildlife #hawkwatch

I’m visiting @floatingfeather at the Goshutes Hawkwatch site this week, lending a hand banding migrating raptors. So far it’s been mostly accipiters - Cooper’s & Sharp-shinned hawks, and the variation in their eye colors is just astounding. The blood red color of this birds eyes marks him as an adult male. #coopers #hawk #hawkwatch #bird (at great salt lake desert Utah)

What a day! #broadwing #hawk #hawkwatch #bird

I’m going to go Hawkwatching with @floatingfeather this week out at the Goshute mountains, so I’m currently winging my way from Florida to Utah. ✈️ Plane travel? Not terribly exciting. 😴 Thinking about getting to see one of the largest hawk migrations up close and personal? Ridiculously exciting! 🐀✨🐦 here’s a picture of Whisper to tide you over until the onslaught of hawk pics that are sure to follow! #bird #owl #wildlife #hawkwatch

It’s International Hawk Migration Week! Have you spotted any passing raptors lately? #bird #eagle #migration

Flying a five thousand kilometer migration on instinct alone. #swallowtailedkite

Ike, you’ve, ah, got a little something there, by your eye. Lemme get that for you.. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜¬ #bird #eagle #wildlife

This weekend I’ll be at the Florida Wildlife Rehabilitators Association’s annual symposium, learning more about how to take care of these wonderful raptors. I can’t wait! #fwra2014 #bird #kestrel #falcon

Speaking of molting, Pepito is almost done with hers! Just a few juvenile feathers left to go, and she’ll be a full fledged adult Mississippi kite. #bird #wildlife #animal
