As luck would have it, the Red-tailed Hawk swooped in and perched on a phone pole just opposite where I was standing taking snapshots of the Harbor. I turned to take a photo of the Hawk and the crescent Moon was rising! The Hawk only stayed a brief moment, but it was a beautiful thing to see.
Then, as we walked closer to the Lighthouse, a juvenile Great Blue Heron flew overhead! All on a December’s afternoon!
