The sound of the shutter fascinated this wren for a short time. Eventually, he flew away.

Temps in the low 60's climbing to mid 70's, northerly breeze, sunny.

Great day to hike!  Saw hawks, a black feral cat, a Red Fox (no photo), couple of field mice and rats, LOTS of birds (photo attached) and a Checkered Garter Snake which surprised me.

Enjoyed the hike, solitude and nice weather.
