Birding at the Racetrack
Megan and I use an incentive system for the boys. When they do chores, behave well, etc., they get a marble placed in a mason jar. When the jar is full, they get a reward. Weston has been wanting to go try the go-karts for a long time, and finally we had a perfect day for it. He had a blast.
The track is situated right next to the I-71 corridor, a habitat that is often frequented by red-tailed hawks. What luck that a beautiful bird soared right above our heads while waiting in line. I just happened to have my telephoto lens and camera all set up for action shots. The red-tailed hawk had eluded me for quite some time. I just didn't have any great photos of this common bird taken in Ohio. Not anymore!
