Anyways, I went out to the dyke again today, but I went too late in the afternoon and the sun was already setting when I got there.
Red-tailed Hawk by the golf course. I saw a Red-tailed Hawk three times today - twice by thegolf course, and I think they are all the same individual.
A Bald Eagle posed nicely in front of me, but the low light condition caused troubles for my camera. Argh! This eagle then took off and broke off a branch while it was flying through the trees. Moments later, it crashed between the trees again and threw the branch away. Strange behavior.
Here's the eagle again, this time gnawing on a branch. I am guessing it's filing it beak? This Bald Eagle is quite peculiar.
The airspace was quite busy today with helicopters, jet planes, float planes, and so forth.
In the late afternoon, my mother and I went out to our street and watched the Olympics torch run. It was quite interesting - a lot of people getting excited to see a person in track suit running with a torch for one or two seconds before s/he is gone. I was not overly excited but at least now I have experienced a (probably) once-in-a-lifetime event.
