Ridgefield NWR 06-18-10

I went up to Ridgefield yesterday around mid-day while it was still sunny. 

This female (or is it a young male?) yellow-headed blackbird was very busy catching mouthfuls of bugs:



You may have noticed that I never tire of bald eagles... Especially when they're in flight:


Or when fighting with a red-tailed hawk:


I managed a nice picture of a cedar waxwing..  I have yet to tire of them as well.



A black-capped chickadee.

The birds were just not getting along today!

I watched a pair of red-winged blackbirds in hot pursuit of a harrier...


They were still on her tail when I lost sight of them...


I returned home to find this bird waiting for me in my parking spot.. possibly eating a Fruit Loop:
