I was taking a picture of the cardinal on the fence and looked up and saw the above hawk staring at me.
Female red-winged blackbird.
This looks like a fairly young female cardinal. She kept flying after a cardinal couple which was probably her parents.
Another hawk right by the parking lot. I think this is a young red shoulder hawk.
I haven’t been seeing many butterflies around lately.

This lady just laid eggs right below the boardwalk. They put up a fence around that area to keep people from trying to get over the boardwalk rail and get to the nest. (It’s amazing the stupid things people do.) You can get by but you can’t reach over or get close to that area. She’s going to have late babies this summer.
