Tuckered

Taken at sunrise, this guy looks pooped and ready to settle in for the day after his nights work feeding the family. Their nest this year is atop a power pole a quarter mile or so west of the park. The last couple of years they nested either in this pine or across the way in a cottonwood but the nest in the pine is gone and the cottonwood is dying so I guess the power pole will do.
