Just another day at the park

Yesterday we ran off to the park to test Lastech’s new phone as we wanted to see how well the navigation worked. We decided to visit the Arboretum in the hope that there might be some wildlife in addition to the magnolias that were blooming.

We rounded a corner to find 3 other people staring at a tree. This is why.

I found it amazing that several people walked by and never even wondered (or noticed) what we were all looking at. The hawk was sitting in a tree next to the walkway. It was only about 7 feet off the ground.

It was a good day. 🙂

  1. Hahaha!! Yeah… oblivious till it swoops in and carries off their chihuahua or something…. 😉

    I saw an eagle do that once… not a dog, but a rabbit.. Just “WHOOSH!!” and he snatched it up and was gone…. Pretty darn impressive.

    Looks like you had a really nice day out. 🙂

    1. Wow! You got to see an eagle snatch a wabbit? That would be pretty darned impressive. I haven’t seen that. I’ve seen Great Herons nab gophers though. 🙂 Our outing was very nice. Our outing today was even more impressive. Different bird and I posted the pics.
