Below is a poor-quality photo (all I had was my cell phone) of a bird that's been hanging round our yard. At fist I thought it was just another robin. Lots of those here. But it wasn't acting quite like a robin, and it looked... I don't know... Like a robin on steroids?

So maybe it's just another robin, but if any of you have any other idea I'd be happy to hear it.

Seemed awfully fierce for a robin

Well,I have looked into it's soul and it was a falcon in its last incarnation.
I couldn't quite determine what manner of transgression led to it's being busted four pay grades.

Clearly there is a nest nearby.

Thought I would share some local birds. Some of the images are soft as the fog was rolling in. We are finally having our summer it has been in the 60's for the past three days!

A few shots from today at the HB Central Park and Burris Basin. No Scarlet Tanager or Blue Grosbeak (Burris Basin), they are my latest target birds, and, oh yeah, that dang Blackpoll Warbler!
