I love your photo essays muy muy much.
Gorgeous Kestrel! I would love to do this river walk with you. My mom's boyfriend tells good stories about the Big Cottonwood that ran by his house. I would love to do a study on walking the valley's big rivers--where you can and where you can't see them. I'd love to walk this one with you!
This post makes me feel good. Informed, but also somehow peaceful and safe because I live so near to that water and those birds. Such a great post.
Those nests are cool.
