I've been lax in my blogging, too preoccupied with the upcoming Holidays. But this recent sighting was just too appropriate for the season to let slide by.
Does this bird look nervous?
Actually, they seem remarkably nonchalant as they move out into the sun after hunting acorns under the oaks. A few months ago it was easy to tell the hens from the chicks, now they are all about the same size.
