female, adult
Cornwall - I'm pretty sure this is the remaining bird from the pair that had bred here for several years. The male was injured in the spring and because its wing could not be repaired it was euthanized unfortunately. They had been using an old industrial smokestack platform as a nest site. The dark area behind the bird is inside the smokestack.

  1. I have been by the site a number of times with no success so it was great to have a chance to both see and photograph the bird. Adults have such striking plumage.
