This is the same park where I saw two Canada Geese with darker markings than usual. I wonder if the one on the left is one of those having lightened up over the last two months.
One of only two coots I saw there that day.
I wonder how its wing was injured.
This is the second bird I tried to catch drinking from this fountain. But they kept flying away.
This grasshopper flew right past me and stopped on the cypress.
I kept hearing this hawk screeching while a bunch of crows flew around. It flew around a couple of times, but I couldn’t see where it landed. I kept walking, and eventually spotted it in this tree, still screeching 15 minutes later.
Some birds spotted on a hike yesterday morning: a California Towhee (the mature one perched on top of a bush) and a bushtit (looking very birb-like). A whole lot of the latter were flying back and forth between the trees on either side of the path, barely stopping long enough for me to point the camera in the right direction.
