|First 3: powered paraglider|
We saw quite a few aviators out there today: two powered paragliders, Swainson's Hawks, Turkey Vultures, a House Finch, assorted sparrows and a Pyrrhuloxia. Wish I could have captured better images of all.
After our trek we took a drive around several different neighborhoods before heading home.
