There was a strong wind blowing from the east this morning at Bolsa Chica. This allowed this male kestrel to ride the wind while hunting for bugs, lizards or small mice.
This female northern harrier was also up over the mesa and gliding low over rabbit island in search of prey.
The kestrel flew directly above me several times as he hunted on the mesa.
This young red tailed hawk was also up over the mesa looking for food. The wind made gliding easy.
