Gaviota - Swainson's Hawk

Peter Schneekloth

Walking Beach to Backcountry trail this morning a bird that looks good for Swainson's Hawk. It was distant but certainly had the feel in the air and the photo's seem to support. The only other bird of mild interest was a Canyon Wren. Looks at the hawk here:

At Refugio it was birdy at the upper creek crossings but nothing of great interest, 5 or more Orange-crowned Warblers perhaps the best.
