Hawk Over Creek





video
Shuttled over to the Post Office....hopped off at Lower Falls on way back...sat awhile in the sun for warmth in Bobcat Meadow....then over to Lodgpole Point to sit on the Merced's bank....Two Does across the River...clip for sometime...Doe's are beginning to chase one another...behind me, a mixed flock of tiny invisible birds...tried for clips and pics...picked up and followed them up the Creek...not having much luck....and then heard Hawk over by the Deer House...trotted over, and sighted Hawk high in an Oak...just as I was zooming in, Hawk flew to the Creek...and out the Swath on the other side...Hawk is tinytiny flying in clip...was standing in the Creek reviewing, when I heard, and then saw, Hawk straight up over head!...calling and soaring in the Magnificent Blue Sky!...clip and pics up...was on wrong side of Creek to follow, so went around Lower Falls, and then down the Creek...but quiet...went to Creek's End and around about the Woods...hopeful Hawk might be perched...once back at the Cabin, did hear Hawk one more time...had time, and walked out the bike Path aways...and found more little tiny invisible birds...may have missed a small Hawk's swoop...a doubtful glimpse of Big Wings!....sunny warm blueblue....ice on the Fall's Wall...at lunch went to the Woods...Doe and Two Fawns at the Ponderosa....sat a short while in the Diversion Channel...quiet..so walked out to Creek's End...Two Does and One Fawn crossing River...missed that..but clip of them in the Channel...oh...earlier I got clip of Mama Doe and Two Fawns resting in the Bracken Ferns thereabout...and another Mama Doe and Two Fawns by the Lunch Sit Log...during the morning walk, I mean...went back to the Ponderosa to get pics of Doe and Two, and found them among the Reeds...and one Fawn actually balanced up on a fallen log...nosing about the splayed roots...clip for sometime...going to have to have a Deer night!...lots of pics and clips for sometime!....no Owl calls...but report of Owls calling at dusk...and a flyover... way over in the Scorched Forest...CottonwoodAndAspen from the description....oh...still windy...lots of leaves gone...but very Fall pretty everywhereabout!...for certain, at least two sets of Does with Two Fawns in the Woods...and three other Does and one Fawn, I think...it may well be that Owl Woods is a traditional Fall gathering place for the Does and Fawns...
