And here is the Cooper’s hawk who nests here each time I’ve stayed in this RV Resort. It’s eating something fairly large, with pink feet — like a pigeon — and feathers and tiny shreds of meat are dropping down onto the empty campsite below. Attracted by the predatory event, a gang of crows is circling, cawking, but the Coop’s is plucking calmly. >>
From 11am to 5pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I’ll be at the San Diego Audubon Bird Festival in the Marina Conference Center on Mission Bay in San Diego, with wazzo-ware and beastie-ware in small but delectable quantities. Come on by!
