Bright and Brisk

It must be nice to have built in sunscreens on bright mornings.

The mystery hawk seems to be confirmed as an awkward and lanky teenager Red-tailed Hawk. The tail says adult, but the eyes give away the fact that this hawk isn't quite grown up yet.

In general the birding was unspectacular. I saw close to a thousand Rock Pigeons, and many more Canada Geese than that. The only species that really shone in the sunlight was this Western Meadowlark though.

It was just nice to be out, and to be able to appreciate a few moments outdoors before the activities of the day took over.
