Hanging Out At Hawk Mountain -- Part Two

I headed back up to Hawk Mountain on Saturday and the contrast with a weekday was dramatic. The place was packed with bird fanciers from all over.

This being the peak of the migration there were plenty of raptors passing through.

But for a few of us lucky people the real show took place below us. Three black vultures stopped by for a drink [there was a small pool of water in the rocks] and we were able to see them cavorting up close for quite a while.

Eventually they left and so did I. On my way back to the car I stopped by the garden. These were getting ready to pop when I was up during the week. By Saturday they were in full bloom. Nice!
