Wet Hawk!

No, it’s not a new species I’ve recently discovered, just a very wet juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk. It was minding its own business, trying to dry off after the evening gully gusher had passed through. But when you’re at the top of the food chain, drying off in the local park draws a lot of undue attention. A pair of robins, several mockingbirds and a few kingbirds were all up in the hawk’s face, trying to force it away from their little corner of Cascades Park. Quite a racket! The hawk took off across the park to look for a quieter place to dry off.
