A red-tailed hawk spotted along the bike path today. It flew up to an electrical transmission tower, perched there for a minute or two, then took off again while I was trying to catch a photo.
I heard the squirrel chattering, then turned to look for it and spotted it up in a magnolia tree. Surprisingly, it held still while I walked around the tree to get a better angle. Then after I took a few more pictures, it jumped off the branch onto a nearby house-turned-museum.
One of these days, after it’s opened again, I’m going to have to actually visit the museum and not just the park.
The second rabbit I saw on the walk.
A very small lizard that had lost its tail
Some wildlife I spotted on a hike today. It was really nice in the shade, but it was also very hilly, and uncomfortably warm in the sun. I ended up staggering back to the car at the end.
The yellow and black bird is some sort of oriole. The black and white one is a black phoebe. I think the rabbit is a desert cottontail.
Spot the squirrels!
I heard noises from this palm tree and went to look. I couldn't quite catch *what* was moving up there at first, so I just pointed the camera up to where I saw movement and took a few shots. Turned out to be these two squirrels, who then chased each other around the trunk, chittering and knocking debris down.
