Spotted in a Charleston, WV rose garden.

Northern blue-breasted buzzard, with chick.


I was looking all over for the avians, I guess the coffee hadn’t kicked in yet! Nice pic of the two of you and all the roses.


Ohhh, what a beautiful natural shot.

What a beautiful rose garden as well.

Thx for sharing, it is nice to put a face to the name!

Hi Don,

Beautiful shot! Looks like you have very healthy roses. What rose is the “chick” holding? Is it a special one?

Well, my roses are healthy but those ain’t them. My daughter Katie and I traveled across country over the last couple of weeks and we stopped by to visit with Peter whose roses they is.
