He's just a big baby!

Yesterday morning as I was commenting on a contact's shot, I heard the "kee-aah, kee-aah," of this

Red-shouldered Hawk. So I quickly as I could, I changed clothes and lenses, and ran to the park. I started to walk up the steps, but then I heard the Crows to the south.

 

Knowing how Crows harass Hawks, I headed in that direction. There, in one of the Eucalyptus trees, was this big baby - at least it looks like a young one to me. I got in several shots before he flew off. It made my day!
