This afternoon, driving this road slowly, keeping an eye out for you know what, and good! there's something up in that middle dead tree. Pulling over to the edge of the road, with camera out the window. At the top, there's a short fork to the left, check the one under it. See it?
The winds are blowing hard, and I'm pleased it's in a stable tree for a photo-shoot, with no foliages blowing in front of it. Earlier bird photo attempts today were pretty futile for that reason.
holding on, it can't have been easy
oops, a big wind gust
