This hawk seemed confused. I was on an observation deck at the Celery Fields nature area, talking with a few other people, when this hawk landed a few feet away on the railing. It seemed disturbed at being so close to people and was very jumpy. But it was the hawk’s choice to land there so I don’t know what its intention could have been.
It was a fantastic day. The heat and humidity is starting to moderate. The birds that went away for the summer are coming back, as are the people with binoculars who stand around for hours and watch them.
