Hiking Photos

Almansor Park 12


Juvenile Cooper's Hawk
This Cooper's Hawk was to far away for my camera so the photos are not clear & maybe I shouldn't have taken the photos but then how often does one see a Hawk in the middle of Alhambra California?

Juvenile Mandarin Ducks

I think that these Ducks are quickly becoming my favorites. The female eyes are just gorgeous. I never knew ducks love peanuts. These ones will stick around for hours as I crack nuts for them. One of the females ducks has a hurt leg so she gets extra peanuts.
