Urban Birds Part Three

A Great Blue Heron on alert at Crissy Field with the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.

This isn’t a paid advertisement… just a striking convergence of flying objects.

A young Redtail finds a convenient perch for gopher hunting.

Another Redtail sees something tasty in the grass and fully commits.

Bumper to bumper traffic. Watching a Redtail cruising along the road at an altitude of three feet always makes me nervous… but they don’t seem to mind.

As we leave the city and close the Urban Birds series… we see a Peregrine perched on the north tower of the Golden Gate Bridge.
