Red-shouldered Hawk and Scrub Jay Have a Face-off
May 23, 2021 Zayante Trail, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Felton, CA

Today I went on my first birding hike with the Santa Cruz Bird Club. As this hawk sat quietly minding its own business, a scrub jay flew in and looked it in the eye. The hawk did not budge, the jay flew off.
