The wary

Fine ground activity. Food hunting. No concern for human presence. Curious chickadee.

Nutting titmouse.

Into the space came about 30 grackles, acorn dunking, sipping water, bathing, a swarm of black....

And then everyone vanished. Whoosh, gone! When the birds vanish like that there's only one reason. Hawk! A Cooper's hawk definitely on the hunt for lunch.

I couldn't follow this hunt, because there are fences up all over the park, Marathon fences. Big detours to get from one place to another. Things will get easier this week.
