This Say’s Phoebe, unlike the squirrel, was kind (or unconcerned) enough to stay put…

A small, slender bird with a black head and wings, and a pale yellow (almost white) belly, perched on top of a red-orange sign in front of a blurred beige brick wall.

This Say’s Phoebe, unlike the squirrel, was kind (or unconcerned) enough to stay put while I walked around it to get both a better angle and better light. #birds #nature #SaysPhoebe

Two hawks circling off in the distance

Gray sky with two birds silhouetted in the distance, their wings stretched out almost flat as they glide.

I saw two hawks circling off in the distance to the northeast, then they chased a few crows toward and past me. Sadly I couldn't catch a picture as they passed above. But a few minutes later I saw these two hawks – probably the same ones – circling in the distance to the southwest. I've seen both Red-Tailed Hawks and Cooper's Hawks in the area, but I think these look more like red-tailed hawks.
