Hawk Hill 2005-10-22

PBKNCA home page

On Saturday, October 23 a hardy group of Phi Betes enjoyed a visit to Hawk Hill, in the Marin Headlands. While it started out very foggy, it eventually cleared and we were treated to great views of hawks, especially a number of redtailed hawks. (There is an excellent picture of a redtailed hawk here, but I can't put it on our site because of copyright). We also got to see Allan Fish, Director of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, exhibit a banded sharp-shinned hawk after banding. They have found that putting the birds in a can, where they cannot see, calms them and is the best way to do the banding and survey.

It started foggy!

So the Phi Betes could use their binoculars

Hawks come in cans
Hawks come in cans?
Who me
Who me? (A sharp-shinned hawk in the gentle hands of Allan Fish, Director of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory)
And away she goes
And away she goes!
