Janice and I met at the SCC. Found the 2 American Kestrels immediately and we just going to head out when I saw the hawk flying low to the building. We watched in fascination as the young hawk flew between trees and landing on trees, stones and public art with grace. He would be standing tall looking around when he would zero in on a bug on the ground, dinner served. He is doing very well and can formally be called a juvenile now that he is hunting on his own.
As we got in our car we watched him fly off again hunting. I know that seeing this beautiful bird is soon going to be a memory.
