I've discovered how fun and relaxing birding is. I don't know much, but have discovered quite a few unusual birds around here in Irvine. The Kites, a pair of them, plus two Kestrel American Kites all hunt in a new nature walk area in Irvine. In one day I saw 2 hawks, 3 Kites, and now a large coyote.
Bluebirds also. Amazing! Wish I had a longer lens...Hope the birds stay for the winter. They are around every day. The bluebirds are fairly rare around here.
