First, in case you were wondering, the beach here this morning:
And now, birds.
Remember that crow from yesterday, the one tending to his companion? At one point he left his perch and flew right here, to face off with this hawk.
The hawk's all, whatever, but the crow's amped up, head up, chest forward, seeking eye contact.
Crow leaves, hawk stays, fluffed up and unfazed.

And quite deliberately, turns his back.
