Not a bad few hours birding today. Highlight was the White Morph Rough Legged Hawk on Lordship Blvd just before the fork that turns off toward the Airport/Long Beach. I have seen the bird in that area several times but this was the first time it was close enough for a few decent shots. The open wings were better than the perched photo and confirmed my in the field ID.
A good number of American Tree Sparrows along the driveway from the Greenway to the Animal Shelter. There were quite vocal and was nice to sit there and listen to them.
