Hello to tweets,

A couple of people have posted about American kestrels near Olympia.
We found the one along Delphi road awhile ago, and got some pictures (see our
nature blog at olypollinators.blogspot.com).

Also on Thanksgiving day we were driving south on highway 99 past the
Olympia airport and saw one perched across from the "Jack Davis oak'.
Yesterday finally got out again to look for it; saw a female kestrel maybe a half mile
south of the airport, again on telephone lines. I have pictures available.

Finally we were driving on Tilley Road in south Thurston county looking
for teasel (a long story). It was getting near dusk, and we saw another one,
probably a female. I went back yesterday and was unable to find it.

So they are around our area in winter in small numbers, especially
along good agriculture lands with a nearby telephone line.
