Off Topic - Bird Watching
Was another cool and pleasant morning at sunrise and I took a number of photos of birds I saw while I walked along the Rillito. Above is a pair of what I think are juvenile Red Tail Hawks. These two usually hunt together, or very close to each other, and are still hanging around their parents' nest, which is in a large gum tree right at the end of Cactus at the wash. At bottom is a Vermilion Fly Catcher perched in a bright green mesquite tree.
