Red-tailed Hawk

It was a cloudy morning. My friend Alex and I went on the 2nd annual Good Friday birdwatching walk at the Technoparc. There were about 120 people who showed up. At the end of the morning and 8000 steps later, we saw and heard 35 species of birds.  This was organized by Joel and friends. Check out their facebook page.
