It turned out to be a great day. We saw three red-tailed hawks (someone later saw four) soaring in close proximity. It was a windy day, and one by one, the hawks would soar to a point almost directly overhead, face into the wind and just float in place. When we got there, one stayed in almost the same place long enough for me to watch it as we parked and then get out of the car and walk nearer to get some pictures. Later, one soared directly overhead and not very high above us, a you can see from this picture!
We also saw many of the usual suspects: scrub jay, many white crowned sparrows, orange crowned warbler, california towhee, ground squirrels and we heard wrentits.
