Roosting raptor

tower roost

I've ridden past this tower a couple of times around sunset and have seen these birds roosting here. My digital camera does not have optical zoom so I'm really pushing it to try a pull out a decent picture. I guess I should come back with my film SLR and 200mm zoom lens to try and get a better picture. This tower is supposed to be for high-speed internet access but those antennas sure look like cellular phone service to me. I think it is interesting to see wildlife like this in an urban setting. I'm surprised to see smaller birds sharing the same roost with the raptors because I thought that they would be lunch for the birds of prey.
