Turkey vulture

Something has brought the predators in, maybe the tiny bit of rain we had the other day, because there was a Harris’s Hawk back again, after a long absence. It was a hot, muggy, overcast morning, as it has been for a few days. The usual doves, woodpeckers, Verdins, the occasional Lucy’s warbler. I never mention the rabbits and groundsquirrels, although they are always there too. Maybe the moisture brings them out of hiding more, attracting the hawks and vultures.
