Two-fer Tuesday

I was driving along a back street on a recent Saturday morning when I happened to glance at a nearby light pole and spotted these two hanging out. Quickly pulling into the parking lot, I slowly walked very close to the pole to take some shots with my ever-present phone. The bird on the left was calling insistently and there was a third bird on the next post over, but facing the other way and not interacting with these two at all. What a great way to start the day!

I tried to look them up online but had no luck finding any hawks that matched how these two looked. (I have the same problem with flowers all too often.) So if any of you can identify them, you’ll make my Tuesday even better.

Mornings are cold at the park now, especially until the (ray, a drop of golden) sun hits.  But by the time I turned down this part of the path, I was warm enough to think about unzipping my jacket just a bit.  I hadn’t see anyone or anything other than birds, when I raised my eyes and saw something looking back at me (a name I call myself).

I immediately stopped, eased my phone out (no, I didn’t have my Nikon, more’s the pity), zoomed in, and took this first photo.

I stood still for a few minutes, then slowly and with camera still at the ready, walked slowly towards her.  Then I saw it.  Look just to the left of her, behind the bushes, and you’ll see it, too.
