This hawk left the top of the tree as we got close. Notice the egret watching it. It thinks it might be in trouble.
The egret will be looking for a safer place.
And it finds it between two cows.
Here are all the gulls at rest once again. I get the focus beep on my E-5 and snap a few pictures.
The gulls become alarmed and take to the air.
Hike on 1/26/16 using Olympus E-5 camera and 50-200mm lens.
I believe this is a male house finch.
