Park Mid-Section Burkett Park to 5 Points Junction

The hawk was being chased by the two smaller birds. Didn't seem to bother the hawk much but he did leave the area.

Temps in the mid 80's, humid, cloudy and light wind.

Very humid and hot but a nice hike.  There really wasn't much going on today; saw lots of lizards, some birds and one small horned toad.  I watched a hawk being chased off by two smaller birds (photo attached) which looked like a pair of Kingbirds.
