A few raptors

It's another one of those times of year, winter and weather kind of limit the ability to get out and get decent photos.

A few swings of south county have not yet produced a western falcon or buteo, but this kestrel was in nice light.

It's an adult male based on the blue wings.

Pics of this eagle were limited by heat waves coming out of the car on a bitterly cold afternoon
It's probably a 3rd winter bird based on the all dark body, mostly dark wings, and muddy head with an eyestripe.  The whiteness of the tail changes considerably with the bird's posture.

Finally a redtail, which was actually from the CBC, but I never managed to work it into a post
