Prairie Falcon

Photo of the Week (March 10th, 2019)

(archive photos of the week here)

Happy New Year! Better late than never? Yes, I haven't updated my photo of the week in quite some time. With spring just around the corner (so I'm wouldn't know it by looking out the window!), it's time to get back in the swing of things. Here's a "shutdown" bird...a Prairie Falcon I took on the Fort Pierre National Grasslands in January, during the government shutdown when I had 5 weeks with nothing to do. Prairie Falcons are a species I've always had a hard time getting close to, so to get one like this, flying directly at me, was a HUGE treat.
