There were so. many. finches.
OneThree of four ground squirrels I saw, three outside the chain-link-enclosed area where they seem to live.
This one was looking around outside the fence before it ran inside, joining another one that I hadn’t seen until they both started moving.
This one was eating, then ran back to the fence for safety as I got closer, looked around for a bit before diving inside.
This one was darting around the lawn nearby.
There are always squirrels at this park.
Most of the geese were toward the back of the park, not out front like they are sometimes.
Sometimes I’ll see a whole flock of coots at this pond, sometimes a handful. Today I only saw one.
Interesting burls on this tree.
This crow started swooping toward a hawk almost as soon as it perched on top of an electrical transmission tower. It tried a bunch of times to scare it off, but the hawk ignored it.
This hawk glided across the sky, then alighted on top of an electrical transmission tower. Almost immediately, a crow started trying to scare it off, swooping toward it repeatedly. The hawk remained unfazed and just stayed put while I walked around to the other side of the tower.
