Crows Roost At Twilight

Crows Roost At Twilight

The crows have taken to roosting in large numbers in the neighborhood lately. They make quite a ruckus as they settle in for the evening.

White pelicans are regular visitors to the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve but can seem out of place to many visitors who think of them only as seaside birds. Pelicans nest on freshwater lakes although they often feed on or near salt water.

Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve 

A view over the reserve’s manmade lake looking north to the San Gabriel Mountains. This reserve is less than a mile from my home and located directly adjacent to the 405 freeway and yet it is filled with birds and other wildlife and provides a wonderful respite from the city. 

Search on the title of the post for more information.

Evidence

It looks like the Cooper’s Hawk has visited again, but this time it looks like it caught a pigeon instead of the usual mourning dove. I am not sure exactly when this happened as I only saw this evidence and not the attack itself.

Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) – 1 in a series [Video]

Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) – 1 in a series

This Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) has become an almost daily visitor to the garden in the last few weeks, so I’ll be sharing a series of video clips of its behaviors for those interested in raptors.

In this video you can see the hawk spreading its wings when a squirrel on the ground approaches too closely. I have seen this behavior several times in the past. sometimes with the squirrel actively chasing off the hawk.
