Green Heron, Night Heron, Redtailed Hawk (20161014) Day 1 of California, headed to Santa Barbara area.
Well after a 31/2 year sabbatical we have managed to return to California to visit with Laurel and Neil. We had an early morning to get there, it was almost not "early" enough. Anyway we made it on Thursday, Friday morning we headed out to the Santa Barbara area to spend the weekend. Although the skies were not pleasant, before we even left the parking lot we found this cooperative Red-shouldered Hawk. We were hoping it was a good omen for the day.
