Urban Birds Part One / by Walter Kitundu

A Red-tailed Hawk with blatant disregard for signage.

Another young Redtail cruising along the Great Highway near Ocean Beach, San Francisco.

This Redtail supplements his diet with sidewalk worms after a rainstorm... but it takes a little searching.

And sometimes you have to run to catch a worm before it makes it back to the grass.

Floating over a roadway while scanning for careless gophers in the ditches.

This Redtail navigates buildings in the Pacific Heights neighborhood as it hunts.

Traffic is another hazard of city living but this bird handles it with aplomb.

This hawk hunts the slopes of Bernal Hill with the skyline as a backdrop. More urban birds tomorrow... stay tuned.
