I visited Corona Heights Park to look for a Bewick’s Wren an ebirder has seen pretty consistently (I’ve been on a bit of a Bewick’s Wren kick lately). I didn’t track down the wren, but a Red-Tailed Hawk flew in while I was searching.

I’ve seen hawks at this park on each of my three visits so far. It’s got scattered trees on top of a high hill, so I imagine it’s a perfect vantage point from which to hunt.

I tried a portrait (below), which didn’t work very well given there was nothing but light cloud behind the hawk. So, I tried zooming out to get a photo of the bird and the city. The San Francisco waterfront is on the near side of the bay while the Oakland harbor is on the far side.
