Just a quick trip looking for birds to photograph, and casing the area to find a place to camp in the days ahead. The birds were scarce, except for a couple of red tailed hawks that kept circling the area and screeching. There must have been a hawk’s nest in the area, as hawks on the prowl don’t generally screech like that. I think they were trying to scare us off. I am sure it scared most of the birds I was looking for.
Even the squirrel was hanging out pretty close to his hole beneath a tree. The weather changed and it got chilly pretty quick. Great scenery and habitat for a wide variety of birds. A good, fun day.
